Representative Text

1. The peace of God—O blessèd peace,
That fills the heart and calms our fears,
That bids our soul’s wild tumult cease,
And gives us sunlight thro’ our tears.

We’ll rest in this wonderful peace,
So blest and so filled with God’s love,
Till our souls find happy release,
And we reach the mansions above.

2. The peace of God—O peace divine,
That bids our restless souls be still,
Till thro’ the clouds the sun doth shine,
And we behold His perfect will. [Refrain]

3. The peace of God—O restful peace,
Thro’ all life’s changing scenes below;
In this we’ll rest till life shall cease,
And Heav’n’s eternal peace we know. [Refrain]

4. Author of peace, to Thee we raise
Our prayer for strength, to e’er endure
The ills we meet, till all our days
Find rest in Thee, Thy peace secure. [Refrain]
