NO. 136 Peace with God

Verse 1:
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.

Verse 2:
Peace with God that floweth ever,
As a river, pure and deep,
Thro’ the sunshine and the shadow,
Thro’ our waking and our sleep.

Verse 3:
Peace with God that passeth knowledge,
On His precious word we rest,
Trusting in His loving kindness,
Lying calmly on His breast.

Eliza Sherman/W. Irving Hartshorn
