Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 There’s a peace, a sweet peace,
Which our Father in Heav’n,
(What a wonderful, wonderful peace!)
To His children below in His love He hath giv’n,
O this wonderful peace is mine!

Refrain:
O this wonderful, wonderful peace,
A gift from the Savior divine;
It filleth my soul, all my life doth control,
This wonderful peace is mine!

2 There’s a peace, a sweet peace,
In my heart as I live,
What a wonderful, wonderful peace!
A heavenly joy that the world cannot give,
O this wonderful peace is mine! [Refrain]

3 There’s a peace, a sweet peace,
That comes from above,
What a wonderful, wonderful peace!
It comes to my soul, overflows it with love,
O this wonderful peace is mine! [Refrain]

4 There’s a peace, a sweet peace,
That is filling my soul,
What a wonderful, wonderful peace!
A pure holy calm that hath taken control,
O this wonderful peace is mine! [Refrain]

5 There’s a peace, a sweet peace,
Which comes to but few,
What a wonderful, wonderful peace!
Jesus bought it for all, He will give it to you,
O this wonderful peace is mine! [Refrain]
