1
The gospel’s a message of peace,
We oft by experience have felt;
’Tis filled with Immanuel’s grace,
And sweeps away mountains of guilt.
O sweet revelation divine!
Delighted, we’ve heard its contents;
All through it our Jesus does shine.
A lover of all his dear saints.

2
Through various scenes of distress,
Perplexèd with sin, guilt, and fear;
This glorious message of grace
Has frequently yielded good cheer.
Dear Lord, may we prize the rich peace,
The peace so abundantly given;
It flows through the word of thy grace,
And makes us anticipate heaven.
