Peace with God, what gift precious;
All earth’s cares and trials cease,
When, like sweetest benediction
Comes this gift of perfect peace.
Peace with God! a peace so perfect,
Earthly cares from troubling cease;
When the heart is stayed upon Him,
Jesus giveth perfect peace.
Peace with God that floweth ever,
As a river, pure and deep,
Thro’ the sunshine and the shadow,
Thro’ our waking and our sleep.
Peace with God that passeth knowledge,
On His precious word we rest,
Trusting in His loving kindness,
Lying calmly on His breast.
