Peace Perfect Peace

Bishop E. H. Bickersteth

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?On Jesus' bosom nought but calm is found.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

It is enough; earth's struggles soon shall cease,And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace."
