Peace, the fruit of pardon'd sin ; Peace that speaks the heavenly Giver ;
Peace to worldly minds unknown; Peace divine that lasts for ever; Peace that comes from God alone.

Let thy sacred kingdom come :
Raise to heaven our expectation ;
Give our favour'd souls to prove Glorious and complete salvation, In the realms of bliss above.

The louring storm shall see;
Whilst thee, great Parent-Mind! we own

Thy feeble servant guide; Supported by thy powerful arm, My footsteps shall not slide.
I would myself resign :
And form my will by thine.
