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.
