"Passeth Understanding"

by Eliza E. Hewitt


O blessed token of the Father's love,
The peace that passeth understanding;
My Saviour brought it from the land above,
The peace that passeth understanding.

The world can neither give nor take away
The peace that passeth understanding;
New measures Jesus giveth day by day,
The peace that passeth understanding.

'Tis founded on the living truth of God,
The peace that passeth understanding;
And by his Spirit sweetly shed abroad,
The peace that passeth understanding.

Far better treasure than earth's fragile joys,
The peace that passeth understanding;
Sure pledge of heaven;'s everlasting joys,
The peace that passeth understanding.

Chorus

Blessed peace, O wondrous peace!
May its swelling tide increase,
And with heav'nly music roll
O'er my yielded soul.
