1 God’s almighty arms are round me;
Peace, peace is mine!
Judgment scenes need not confound me:
Peace, peace is mine!
Jesus came Himself and sought me;
Sold to Death,
He found and bought me;
Then my blessed freedom taught me—
Peace, peace is mine!

2 While I hear life’s rugged billows,
Peace, peace is mine!
Why suspend my harp on willows?
Peace, peace is mine!
I may sing, with Christ beside me,
Though a thousand ills betide me:
Safely He hath sworn to guide me:
Peace, peace is mine!

3 Ev’ry trial draws Him nearer,
Peace, peace is mine!
All His strokes but make Him dearer:
Peace, peace is mine!
Bless I then the hand that smiteth
Gently, and to heal delighteth;
‘Tis against my sins He fighteth:
Peace, peace is mine!

4 Welcome ev’ry rising sunlight,
Peace, peace is mine!
Nearer home each rolling midnight:
Peace, peace is mine!
Death and hell cannot appal me;
Safe in Christ whate’er befall me;
Calmly wait till He call me:
Peace, peace is mine!

Smith, Joseph Denham, was born at Romsey, Hants, circa 1816. After studying for some time in the Dublin Theological Institute, he entered the Congregational Ministry in 1840. In 1849 he became Pastor of the Congregational Church at Kingstown, near Dublin, and in 1863 began a series of services at Merrion Hall, Dublin, and subsequently at other places. His Evangelistic work in England and Ireland is well known. In connection therewith he has published a large number of tracts, pamphlets, and small books. One of these, Times of Refreshing illustrated in the Present Revival of Religion, 1860, included several of his hymns which were sung during that time at his special services at Kingstown. He also published Seven Hymns for the Present Time,… Go to person page >
