Peace be to Every Contrite SoulDon Fortner

(Tune: #180 — Lord God, our Thanks to Thee we Raise — LM)


1.    Peace be to every contrite soul,

Where floods of godly sorrow roll. —

Sweet peace, the gift of grace from God,

Secured and sealed with precious blood!


2.    Peace be to humbled broken hearts,

Sweet peace God’s cov’nant love imparts!

That holy calm, that sacred rest,

His grace creates within the breast.


3.    This peace will slavish fears control,

‘Tis Jesus reigning in the soul;

By God Himself most freely giv’n,

Maintained on earth, complete in heaven!
