Lyrics

Like waters of a troubled sea,
Whose ragings never cease,
My soul cried out in anguish deep,
Till Jesus whispered, Peace.

Refrain

Since Jesus whispered, Peace,
Since Jesus whispered, Peace;
I’m singing on life’s journey here,
Since Jesus whispered, Peace.

The voice of Jesus calmed the storm
That raged and would not cease;
My soul was tossed on angry waves,
But Jesus whispered, Peace.

Refrain

The Savior carried all my grief
When He became my peace;
And now my soul is filled with joy,
For Jesus whispered, Peace.

Refrain

And now I have contentment here,
From sin I have release;
I’m singing on my way below,
Since Jesus whispered, Peace.
