Peace I leave with you, my friends,
peace the world cannot give.
Peace I leave with you, my friends,
so that your joy be ever full.

1 The Father's love I came to give,
to be the hope for all who live. [Refrain]

2 Take his gift and be at peace;
the Spirit of our love I bring. [Refrain]

3 By this love which you should have,
all will know you are my friends. [Refrain]

4 Take my words of life to heart,
and you will live with hope and joy. [Refrain]

5 All I have I give to you;
I share with you the Father's love. [Refrain]

6 I came so that you may have life,
and have it to the full. [Refrain]

7 If you love me, keep my word,
and our home we'll make with you. [Refrain]

Peace I leave with you, my friends,
so that your joy be ever full.
