(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
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.
Peace, peace, sweep peace! Wonderful gift from above! (above!)
O wonderful, wonderful peace! sweet Peace, the gift of God’s love!
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.
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.
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.
