1.Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin:
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
2.Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed:
To do the will of Jesus,—this is rest.
3.Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round:
On Jesus' bosom nought but calm is found.
4.Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away:
In Jesus' keeping we are safe, and they.
5.Peace, perect peace, our future all unknown:
Jesus we know, and he is on the throne.
6.Peace, perfect peace death shadowing us and ours:
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.
7.It is enough; earth's struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace. Amen.
