Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Sweetest word of Jesus,
To the troubled heart,
Soothing care and sorrow,
Making fear depart;
Like a benediction,
Bidding turmoil cease,
Comes the Saviour’s blessed word,
“Peace, I give you peace.”

Refrain:
Word of words the sweetest,
‘Twas the angels’ strain,
When the heavn’ly chorus
Sang o’er Bethlehem’s plain.
Peace on earth from heaven,
May it e’er increase,
Till all hearts shall own its sway,
Peace, most blessed peace.

2 On the cross of Calv’ry,
Peace for us was made;
For a world’s redemption,
Great the price He paid.
Now from Satan’s bondage,
Giving glad release,
Comes the Saviour’s blessed word,
“Peace, I give you peace.” [Refrain]

3 Hear the blessed message,
Do not slight His call,—
While the Saviour offers
Pardon free to all.
Speed the good news ever,
Let it never cease,
Till all hearts shall hear the word,
“Peace, I give you peace.” [Refrain]
