CAC GHB 820 : PEACE PERFECT PEACE


Peace perfect peace-820
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Isa 26:3
Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found

Peace, perfect peace, with lov’d ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne
Peace, perfect peace, death shad’wing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquish’d death and all its pow’rs

It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus calls us to heav’n perfect peace.
