Hymn/Song Information

PEACE AND CONTENTMENT




Happy is the man and blessed,
Who preserves a conscience clear;
Purged from sin, no more distressed,
He is free from slavish fear:
This supports his feeble spirits,
Makes him bend beneath the rod;
Trusting in the Saviourís merits,
He has confidence in God.


Though by creatures heís neglected
What to him are all mankind!
If he be of God accepted,
True contentment he will find:
When the nations in confusion,
Strive each other to devour,
Free from dread and consternation,
He can trust and still adore.


On a rock his faith is founded,
Proof against the swelling waves,
Knowing every surge is bounded,
Lo, the fearful storm he braves:
Crosses serve but to instruct him,
Heís a pilgrim here below;
Angels will ere long conduct him,
Where he long has wished to go.
