The candle of Peace
Peace, all other peace transcending
Peace, so eternal and unending.
Peace that oases understanding
Peace so perfect and undemanding
Peace lovely peace floods into my soul
Peace that heals and makes me whole
Peace from God that comes from heaven.
the peace of Jesus flowing deep within.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr.,1875.
Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.
Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus' bosom naught but calm is found.
Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus' keeping we are safe, and they.
Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.
Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.
It is enough: earth's struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to Heaven's perfect peace.
