Peace! Perfect Peace!

Verse 1:
Peace! perfect peace! in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

Verse 2:
Peace! perfect peace! by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will Jesus, this is rest.

Verse 3:
Peace! perfect peace! with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom nought but calm is found.

Verse 4:
Peace! perfect peace! with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

Verse 5:
Peace! perfect peace! our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Verse 6:
Peace! perfect peace! death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

Verse 7:
It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to heaven’s perfect peace.
