Psalm 29:11
"The LORD will give strength unto his people;
the LORD will bless his people with peace."

          Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight,
          Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
          In celestial like strains it unceasingly falls,
          O'er my soul like an infinite calm.

            Chorus
            Peace!  peace!  wonderful peace,
            Coming down from the Father above;
            Sweep over my spirit for ever, I pray,
            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
            Peace!  peace!  wonderful peace,
            Coming down from the Father above;
            Sweep over my spirit for ever, I pray,
            In fathomless billows of love.

          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
            Peace!  peace!  wonderful peace,
            Coming down from the Father above;
            Sweep over my spirit for ever, I pray,
            In fathomless billows of love.

          And me thinks when I rise to that City of peace,
          Where the Author of peace I shall see,
          That one strain of the song which the ransomed will sing,
          In that heavenly kingdom shall be:

            Chorus
            Peace!  peace!  wonderful peace,
            Coming down from the Father above;
            Sweep over my spirit for ever, I pray,
            In fathomless billows of love.

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

            Chorus
            Peace!  peace!  wonderful peace,
            Coming down from the Father above;
            Sweep over my spirit for ever, I pray,
            In fathomless billows of love.
