Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.@John 14:27

James M. Black (🔊 pdf nwc).

My soul is resting in God’s peace,
Without a doubt or fear;
The boisterous waves of trouble cease,
For Christ, my Lord, is near.

Refrain

Resting, resting,
Resting in God’s sweet peace;
Resting, resting,
I’m resting in God’s sweet peace.

The Spirit poureth from on high,
A sanctifying tide,
And bathing in its streams of joy,
My soul is satisfied.

Refrain

My hand in His, I will not fear,
How fierce may be the storm;
I’m sheltered in His love each day,
And kept from all alarm.

Refrain

He drives my every doubt away,
He gives me childlike faith;
And so I take the yea or nay,
Just as my Father saith.

Refrain
