Peace

Peace, Peace, Wonderful Peace (an old hymn)

Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight

Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;

In celestial strains it unceasingly falls

O’er my soul like an infinite calm.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,

Coming down from the Father above
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray

In fathomless billows of love

What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,

Buried deep in the heart of my soul,

So secure that no power can mine it away,

While the years of eternity roll!

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,

Coming down from the Father above
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray

In fathomless billows of love

I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,

Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control;

For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,

And His glory is flooding my soul!

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray

In fathomless billows of love

And I think when I rise to that city of peace,

Where the Anchor of peace I shall see,

That one strain of the song which the ransomed will sing

In that heavenly kingdom will be:

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,

Coming down from the Father above
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray

In fathomless billows of love

Ah, soul! are you here without comfort and rest,

Marching down the rough pathway of time?

Make Jesus your Friend ere the shadows grow dark;

O accept of this peace so sublime!

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,

Coming down from the Father above
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray

In fathomless billows of love
