The Peace of God. C. M.
1. UNITE, my roving thoughts, unite
In silence soft and sweet;
And thou, my soul, sit gently down
At thy great Sovereign's feet:
2. Jehovah's awful voice is heard,
Yet gladly I attend,
For lo, the everlasting God
Proclaims himself my friend.
3. Harmonious accents to my soul
The sounds of peace convey;
The tempest at his word subsides,
And winds and seas obey.
4. By all its joys I charge my heart
To grieve his love no more;
But, charmed by melody divine,
To give its follies o'er.
