There's comfort and peace for the mourner

Representative Text

1 There's comfort and peace for the mourner,
There's rest for the troubled within,
'Tis found in the gospel of Jesus,
The Saviour from sorrow and sin.

Refrain:
Peace, peace, peace,
Sweet peace for the spirit oppressed,
There's peace in the words of the Saviour,
Who promises comfort and rest.

2 He publishes peace and salvation,
Obtained at an infinite cost,
Oh! welcome the free invitation,
The tidings of grace to the lost. [Refrain]

3 To all that are burdened and weary,
And long to be happy and blest,
He offers in tender compassion,
Forgivness and comfort and rest. [Refrain]
