Lyrics

Peace I have most full and free,
Peace from simply trusting Thee,
Joy serene I hold all day,
When I follow Christ, the way.

Love divine including all,
From the greatest to the small,
Can be mine in that degree
That I let it shine thro’ me.

Safe from fears am I and whole,
Thro’ the Christ within my soul,
Rest I have in every thing,
When to Thee I closely cling.

Satisfaction, full, complete,
Fills me with its fragrance sweet,
Health of body and of mind
In the living Christ I find.
