Lyrics

Peace like a ri­ver is flood­ing my soul,
Since Christ, my Sav­ior, mak­eth me whole;
Sweet peace abid­ing my por­tion shall be—
Jesus, my Sav­ior, is pre­cious to me.

Refrain

Precious to me, pre­cious is He;
Jesus shall ev­er be pre­cious to me.

Joy is abound­ing—my heart gai­ly sings,
Cleave I the hea­vens—mount up on wings;
Christ hath ex­alt­ed—my soul He set free—
Jesus, my Sav­ior, is pre­cious to me.

Refrain

Oh pre­cious Je­sus, how love­ly Thou art!
Come and abid­ing, rule in my heart;
Break ev­ery fet­ter—Thy face let me see,
Then Thou shalt ev­er be pre­cious to me.
