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 naught but calm is found.
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 struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus, call us to heaven's perfect peace.
