|PEACE, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
|2||Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom nought but calm is found.
|3||Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.
|4||Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.
|5||Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.
|6||It is enough: earth’s troubles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to Heaven’s perfect peace.
|Edward Henry Bickersteth, 1825-1906|
