713. A mind at perfect peace with God

Author: Catesby Paget

A mind at perfect peace with God;
O what a word is this!
A sinner reconciled through blood:
this, this indeed is peace.

2. By nature and by practice far,
so very far from God!
yet now by grace brought near to him
through faith in Jesus’ blood.

3. So near, so very near to God,
I cannot nearer be;
for in the person of his Son
I am as near as he.

4. So dear, so very dear to God,
more dear I cannot be;
the love with which he loves the Son,
such is his love for me.

5. Why should I ever anxious be,
when kept by power divine?
This is my God, who says to me
that all he has is mine.
