Text

Sweet is the peace the gospel brings
To seeking minds and true.
With light refulgent on it's wings,
It clears the human view.

It's laws and precepts are divine
And show a Father's care.
Transcendent love and ercy shine
In each injunction there.

Faithless tradition flees its pow'r
And unbelief gives way.
The gloomy clouds, which used to low'r,
Submit to reason's sway.

That which in part we have received
Will be in part no more,
For He in whom we all believe
To us will all restore.

May we who know the sacred Name
From ev'ry sin depart.
Then will the Spirit's constant flame
Preserve us pure in heart.

    The violin obbligato helps to create a most inviting setting for this beloved hymn. I also like very much the harmony of the vocal parts and variation of texture from verse to verse! Thank you for arranging a piece worthy of the message.
