Representative Text

1 When out on the waters of sin and despair,
The Saviour spoke peace to my soul;
My heart was so heavy—o’erburdened with care,
The Saviour spoke peace to my soul.

Refrain:
Oh! Jesus speaks peace to my soul,
Oh! Jesus speaks peace to my soul,
His love makes me perfectly whole,
And whispers sweet peace to my soul.

2 He spoke to me lovingly, “Peace, peace be still,”
The Saviour spoke peace to my soul;
Then hush’d was the tempest by His mighty will,
The Saviour spoke peace to my soul. [Refrain]

3 My heart is in safety—my Refuge is near,
The Saviour speaks peace to my soul;
The billows may roll but no storm I now fear,
The Saviour speaks peace to my soul. [Refrain]

4 I rest now in Jesus, my Brother and Friend,
The Saviour speaks peace to my soul;
He’ll guide and protect me and keep to the end,
The Saviour speaks peace to my soul. [Refrain]
