“This man shall be the peace.” Mic. 5. 5; Eph. 2. 14

J. Kent                      L.M.

1
Peace by his cross has Jesus made;
 The church’s everlasting Head
 O’er hell and sin has victory won,
 And, with a shout, to glory gone.

2
When o’er thy head the billows roll,
 And shades of sin obscure thy soul;
 When thou canst no deliverance see,
 Yet still this Man thy Peace shall be.

3
In tribulation’s thorny maze,
 Or on the mount of sovereign grace,
 Or in the fire, or through the sea,
 This glorious Man thy Peace shall be.

4
Yea, when thy eye of faith is dim,
 Rest thou on Jesus, sink or swim,
 And at his footstool bow the knee,
 For Israel’s God thy Peace shall be.
