1 There comes to my heart one sweet strain,
A glad and a joyous refrain;
I sing it again and again
Sweet peace, the gift of God's love.

Refrain:
Peace, peace, sweet peace!
Wonderful gift from above!
O wonderful, wonderful peace!
Sweet peace, the gift of God's love!

2 Thru Christ on the cross peace was made,
My debt by His death was all paid;
No other foundation is laid
For peace, the gift of God's love. [Refrain]

3 When Jesus as Lord I had crowned,
My heart with this peace did abound;
In Him the rich blessing I found
Sweet peace, the gift of God's love. [Refrain]

4 In Jesus for peace I abide,
And as I keep close to His side,
There's nothing but peace doth betide
Sweet peace, the gift of God's love. [Refrain]
