Mrs. W.L. Murphy


THERE’S a peace in my heart that the world never gave,

A peace it cannot take away;

Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,

I’ve a peace that has come there to stay!

Constantly abiding,

Jesus is mine;

Constantly abiding,

Rapture divine;

He never leaves me lonely,

Whispers, O so kind:

“I will never leave thee,”

Jesus is mine.


All the world seemed to sing of a Saviour and King,

When peace sweetly came to my heart;

Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day,

Blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art!


This treasure I have in a temple of clay,

While here on His footstool I roam:

But He’s coming to take me some glorious day,

Over there to my heavenly home!
