The peace of God, which passeth all understanding. Philippians 4:7
Words: Anonymous, in Hymns for the Chamber of Sickness, by James Edmeston (London: Religious Tract Society, 1844), page 34.
If you know where to get a good picture of Edmeston or Dickinson (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
Peace of God which knows no measure,
Heavenly sunbeam of the soul,
Peace beyond all earthly treasure,
Come, and every fear control.
Do disease and pains alarm me?
Do I fear impending ill?
Evil hath not power to harm me,
He can whisper—
Peace, be still.
Oh! Almighty to deliver,
Thou on whom my hope is stayed,
I would trust in Thee for ever,
Then I cannot be afraid.
