The dove of peace sings in my heart

Representative Text

1 The dove of peace sings in my heart,
"In strife and war thou hast no part;
Thy place among the hosts of wrong
Is but to echo love's sweet song."

The dove of peace sings in my soul,
"Thy Saviour's blood doth make thee whole;"
The Spirit's voice, like wooing dove,
Sings of my Saviour's deathless love.

2 The dove of peace hath radiant wings,
And light and melody he brings;
He tells of my soon-coming King,
Of praises that the angels sing. [Refrain]

3 O gentle voice of Jesus' love!
It links the life to heav'n above,
And thro' all sorrow and all wrong
O'erflows the soul with tender song. [Refrain]

4 The dove of peace shall ne'er depart,
But keep his home within my heart.
E'en when I rise to worlds above,
I'll hear the singing of the dove. [Refrain]

5 O wouldst thou hear the dove within?
Let Jesus cleanse thy heart from sin:
Then in sweet measures from above
Thou'lt hear the music of his love. [Refrain]
