#284: Sweet Peace, the Gift of God’s Love

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

There comes to my heard one sweet strain A glad and a joyous refrain;

I sing it again and again — sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

CHORUS

Peace, peace, sweep peace! Wonderful gift from above! (above!)

O wonderful, wonderful peace! sweet Peace, the gift of God’s love!

2

Thru Christ on the Cross peace was made, My debt by His death was all paid.

No other foundation is laid For peace, the gift of God’s love.

CHORUS

3

When Jesus as Lord I had crowned, My heart with this peace did abound;

In Him the rich blessing I found — Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

CHORUS

4

In Jesus for peace I abide, And as I keep close to his side,

There’s nothing but peace doth betide — Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

CHORUS
