Lyrics

Peace to soothe our bit­ter woes
God in Christ on us be­stows;
Jesus bought our peace with God
With His ho­ly, pre­cious blood;
Peace in Him for sin­ners found
Is the Gos­pel’s joy­ful sound.

Peace to us the Church doth tell,
’Tis her wel­come and fare­well;
Peace was our bap­tis­mal dow­er,
Peace shall bless our dy­ing hour;
Peace be with you, full and free,
Now and through eter­ni­ty.
