Isaiah 26:3
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

          Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
          The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

          Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
          On Jesus' bosom naught 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 heav'n's perfect peace.
