We bless Thee for Thy peace, O God,
Deep as the unfathomed sea,
Which falls like sunshine on the road
Of those who trust in Thee.
We ask not, Father, for repose
Which comes from an outward rest,
If we may have through all life’s woes
Thy peace within our breast.
That peace which flows serene and deep,
Like a river in the soul,
Whose banks a living verdure keep,
God’s sunshine o’er the whole.
O Father, give our hearts this peace,
Whatever the outward be,
Till all life’s discipline shall cease,
And we go home to Thee.
