#287: Like a River Glorious

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

1

Like a river glorious Is God’s perfect peace,

Over all victorious In its bright increase;

Perfect, yet it floweth Fuller ev’ry day,

Perfect, yet it groweth Deeper all the way.

REFRAIN

Stayed upon Jehovah, Hearts are fully flest —

Finding as He promised, Perfect peace and rest.

2

Hidden in the hollow Of His blessed hand,

Never foe can follow, Never traitor stand;

Not a surge of worry, Not a shade of care,

Not a blast of hurry Touch the spirit there.

REFRAIN

3

Ev’ry joy or trial Falleth from above,

Traced upon our dial By the Sun of Love,

We may trust Him fully All for us to do —

They who trust Him wholly Find Him wholly true.

REFRAIN
