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.

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]
