The peace of God protects our hearts
Against the tempter’s fiery darts.
It is as sure when evening falls
As when the golden morning calls.
This peace our Savior wrought for us
In agony upon the cross,
And when He up to heaven soared,
His peace He left us in His word.
His word of peace new strength imparts
Each day to faint and troubled hearts,
And in His cup and at the font
It stills our deepest need and want.
This blessed peace our Lord will give
To all who in His Spirit live.
And even at their dying breath
Its comfort breaks the sting of death.
When Christ for us His peace hath won
He asked for faith and faith alone.
By faith and not by merits vain,
Our hearts God’s blessed peace obtain.
Peace be with you, our Savior saith
In answer to the word of faith.
Whoso hath faith, shall find release
And dwell in God’s eternal peace.
