Wonderful Peace

A                            D        A
Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
               B7           E
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
   A                      D
In celestial strains it unceasingly falls
        A            E7       A 
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.

Chorus:
A             D         A  
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
       F#m           B7      E
Coming down from the Father above!
A                        D
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
   A          E7         A
In fathomless billows of love!

What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,
Buried deep in the heart of my soul,
So secure that no power can mine it away,
While the years of eternity roll!

Chorus

I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,
Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control;
For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,
And His glory is flooding my soul!

Chorus

And I think when I rise to that city of peace,
Where the Anchor of peace I shall see,
That one strain of the song which the ransomed will sing
In that heavenly kingdom will be:

Chorus

Ah, soul! are you here without comfort and rest,
Marching down the rough pathway of time?
Make Jesus your Friend ere the shadows grow dark;
O accept of this peace so sublime!
