Like a River Glorious


 

 



Like a river glorious, is God's perfect peace,
over all victorious, in its bright increase;
perfect, yet it floweth, fuller every day,
perfect, yet it groweth, deeper all the way.
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
never foe can follow, never traitors stand;
not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
not a blast of hurry, touch the spirit there.
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

Every joy or trial falleth from above,
traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
we may trust Him fully all for us to do.
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.
