Peace of mind and peace of soul
The world can never, never give,
Now is mine, thro’ Christ I’m whole,
And by His precepts I will live.


To Christ, the Lord, all praises be,
By His grace I’ve gained release;
O’er sin I’ve won the victory,
And abide in peace, sweet peace!

Peace has conquered doubt and fear,
I fully trust my Savior now;
He to bless is ever near,
And to His will in love I bow.


Peace is mine, whate’er befall,
From worldly strife I am secure;
Jesus is my all in all,
And faithful He will e’er endure.
