Both riches and honor come of Thee, and Thou reignest over all; and in Thine hand is power and might; and in Thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.@1 Chronicles 29:12

Frank H. Mashaw, 1902.

Isaac V. Tracy ( pdf nwc).

I was poorer than all, I was hungry and cold,
I was far, far away from the dear Shepherd’s fold;
But Jesus now gives me of His riches untold,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

Refrain

I was poorer than all; now I’ve riches to spare,
And a home He is building for me so bright and fair;
And some day I am going to my home over there,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

I was poorer than all, I was friendless, alone,
I was still in my sins, and my heart was a stone;
But Jesus smiled on me and said, Thou art My own,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

Refrain

I was poorer than all, I was ready to die,
But the Savior came down from His throne in the sky;
On Calv’ry He ransomed such a sinner as I,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

Refrain

I was poorer than all till the Lord said to me,
Go in peace, sin no more; now I’m happy and free,
And ever I’ll praise Him, and His child I will be.
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

Refrain
