Hymn/Song Information

PEACE LIKE A RIVER




Give me a heart of calm repose
Amid the world's loud roar ;
A life that like a river flows,
Along a peaceful shore.


I would roll onward to the deep,
In brightness, not in foam ;
And 'mid earth's noise in stillness keep
My soul's interior home.


Come, Holy Spirit, hush my heart
With gentleness divine ;
Indwelling peace Thou canst impart,
Oh, make the blessing mine !


Above the scenes of storm and strife,
There spreads a region fair ;
Give me to live that higher life
And breathe that purer air.


Allay this feverish, restless mood,
Arrest life's eager chase,
And quench the thirst for earthly good
With thy bedewing grace !


Come, Holy Spirit, breathe that peace
Which flows from pardoned sin ;
Then shall my soul her conflict cease,
And find a heaven within.
