Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin
|Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
|Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus—this is rest.
|Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus' bosom naught but calm is found.
|Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus' keeping we are safe, and they.
|Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

We are burying my younger brother on the 31st of July. I'm currently sorting out the hymns that will be sang and the pastor has picked this hymn.
I really need this perfect peace for me and my family as we mourn and as we travel home to bury our brother.
Lord, please grant us all peace to know that our brother is with you eternally. Amen

My dear cousin passed away last week on February 10, 2021. On the night of her death I was lying in bed thinking abt her; couldn't go to sleep when all of a sudden a calming sensation of peace came over me and I drifted off into a Sweet; Sweet sleep. The best sleep I had in a long time. God came to me and said "Your Cousin is okay and I mean REALLY OKAY." I knew then that she was in Peace Perfect Peace. Thank you Lord. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

For years this song was associated with the burial of the dead. One Sunday morning, nearly 15 years ago, it was introduced as a hymn of praise. Only less than 20% of church members agreed to sing it. The others, in superstition felt it may cause them harm.
I am glad I joined the 20% that sang this song that day because, now any time I feel lost, distressed and confused, I go back to the words of this song.
In whatever situation we find ourselves, there is PERFECT PEACE TO BE FOUND IN JESUS. Glory and praise to you O Lord. Amen

After preaching to our neighborhood this morning. We tuned on the set as we were going back home, and this hymn peace perfect peace started singing and it was suiting to the message we declared this morning, both to us preachers and to the people we preached to. Jesus is all-in all.

"Peace peace" . . in Egypt : When I see the blood I will pass over you."(Exodus 12:13). Much much better now the Blood of the Lamb speaks of better things . . . from Heaven. '(Hebrews 12:24, 25)

Back in 1969 we were missionaries in a remote part of Papua (Irian Jaya), Indonesia. One evening missionary friends, who were taking a break from their demanding schedule, came to our home, and while there we sang "Peace, perfect peace in this dark world of sin." Yesterday they wrote to say thank you for that "seemingly insignificant moment with lasting implications" saying that the "recent events in the world brought back the memory of that hymn sung at your place." Fifty-one years ago, this hymn touched their hearts -- and ours -- and its truth still rings loudly today in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic.
