He Whispers Sweet Peace to Me

Representative Text

1 Sometime when misgivings darken the day,
And faith's light I cannot see;
I ask my dear Lord to brighten the way,
He whispers sweet peace to me.

Refrain:
He whispers sweet peace to me,
He whispers sweet peace to me,
And thro'His blest word He strengthens my soul,
He whispers sweet peace to me.

2 I could not go on without Him I know,
The world would o'erwhelm my soul;
His word is a lamp and brightens the way,
It points to the heav'nly goal. [Refrain]

3 I trust Him thru faith, by faith hold His hand,
By faith I will travel on;
I'll trust in His word, obey His commands,
'Till vict'ry I shall have won. [Rerain]

4 He speaks thru His word, assurance He gives,
I'm His and I know He's mind;
And safe in the fold my soul he will keep,
I'll rest in His love divine. [Refrain]
