Like a River Glorious

Verse 1

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.


Trusting in Jehovah,
Hearts are fully blessed—
Finding, as He promised,
Perfect peace and rest.

Verse 2

Hidden in the hollow
Of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow,
Never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry,
Not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry
Touch the spirit there.

Verse 3

Every joy or testing
Comes from God above,
Given to His children
As an act of love;
We may trust Him fully
All for us to do—
Those who trust Him wholly
Find Him wholly true.
