1. There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave, A peace it cannot take away; Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud, I’ve a peace that has come here to stay!
Refain: Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine; Constantly abiding, rapture divine; He never leaves me lonely, whispers, oh, so kind: “I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.
2. All the world seemed to sing of a Savior and King, When peace sweetly came to my heart; Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day, Blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art!
3. This treasure I have in a temple of clay, While here on His footstool I roam; But He’s coming to take me some glorious day, Over there to my heavenly home!
