Tune: Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin (Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr., 1875)


Peace, perfect peace, how can we get this peace?

Without war, there can be no lasting peace!


Peace, perfect peace, while evil ones assail?

Israel fought, and is still fighting for peace!


Peace, perfect peace, in this wild, restless state?

To find peace, we must fight, first, on our knees!


It is enough! Oppression is enough!

By peaceful war, we’ll gain our peace, though tough!


Peace, perfect peace, when ours are slain like rams?

Let the Ultimate Sacrifice speak peace!


No peace, no rest, till war is fought and won!

Talk not of peace where there is no justice!


Justice must reign if there will be real peace!

The Prince of Peace shall grant us perfect peace!


Fair play will pay, where all are granted say

The Prince of Peace may then grant us full peace.


Truth must prevail like Light shuts out darkness

That Tuth springs from Him who’s the Way, the Life.


Fight on my friends! We’re more than conquerors!

By the Blood, we shall gain the Lamb’s true peace.
