Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.@John 14:27

If kneeling at the gate of prayer,
My soul has laid its burden there;
If sealed with blood and cleansed from sin
I hear a voice that speaks within…

Refrain

God’s peace I’ll know,
God’s peace I’ll know,
I’ll praise His name where’er I go;
In storm or calm, in bliss or woe,
In life or death, in life or death
God’s peace, God’s peace I’ll know.

If dear to me the sacred page,
The lamp of youth, the staff of age,
If on the rock I stand secure,
My hope unmoved, my anchor sure…

Refrain

If patient faith my heart inspire
And kindle there devotion’s fire,
If trusting on from day to day
I learn to wait, believe, obey…

Refrain

If pure in spirit I behold
A wealth whose joy has ne’er been told,
If faith and work with me abide,
And I thro’ faith am justified…

Refrain
