Peace, be still

Representative Text

1 There’s a song my heart is singing,
Thro’ my soul the sweet tones thrill,
To my life true joy ‘tis bringing,
In the sweet words “peace be still.”

O my heart is softly singing!
Unto him my soul is clinging,
Sweetest peace his words are bringing,
When he whispers, “peace be still.”

2 Sailing over life’s rough ocean,
Raging winds the canvass fill,
But above the storm’s commotion,
Comes the whisper, “peace be still.” [Refrain]

3 So my life is filled with gladness,
And my heart bows to his will,
Lighter trial; pain and sadness,
When he whispers, “peace be still.” [Refrain]

4 When I cross death’s surging river,
And its waves my heart would chill,
With new life my soul shall quiver,
As he whispers, “peace be still.” [Refrain]
