Lyrics

God’s abid­ing peace is in my soul to­day,
Yes, I feel it now, yes, I feel it now;
He has tak­en all my doubts and fears away,
Tho’ I can­not tell you how.

Refrain

It is mine, mine, bless­èd be His name!
He has giv­en peace, per­fect peace to me;
It is mine, mine, bless­èd be His name!
Mine for all eter­ni­ty!

He has wrought in me a sweet and per­fect rest,
In my rap­tured heart I can feel it now;
He each pass­ing moment keeps me saved and blest,
Floods with light my heart and brow.

Refrain

He has given me a ne­ver failing joy,
Oh, I have it now! oh, I have it now!
To His praise I will my ran­somed pow’rs employ,
And renew my grate­ful vow.

Refrain

Oh, the love of God is com­fort­ing my soul,
For His love is mine, yes, His love is mine!
Waves of joy and glad­ness o’er my spir­it roll,
Thrilling me with life di­vine.

Refrain
