|16 - River of peace|
Iíll sing of a river divine,
Its waters from trouble release;
More precious than honey and wine,
That river, sweet river is peace.
Oh, this river of peace|
Oh, this river of peace, blessed river of peace
Makes me perfect and whole;
Makes me perfect and whole, ever perfect and whole;
And its blessings increase,
And its blessings increase, ever joyful increase,
Flowing deep in my soul.
Flowing deep in my happy (happy) soul.
It reaches from heaven to earth,|
It issues from under the throne;
Great peace! oh, thy infinite worth!
Sweet peace in my Jesus alone.
Oh, wonderful life-giving flood,|
Thy waters so crystal and pure
Make glad all the City of God;
Forever thy blessings endure.
Oh, Jesus, the tempest of sin|
Is hushed into heavenly rest,
Since tasting the pure, living stream
That flows from Thy crucified breast.
My moments as angels appear,|
All gliding so gently along;
Each dropping a blessing so rare,
Enraptures my soul with a song.
