428: A MIND at perfect peace with God:by Catesby Paget (19th Century)
1 A MIND at perfect peace with God:
Oh, what a word is this!
A sinner reconciled through blood:
This, this indeed is peace.
2 By nature and by practice far,
How very far from God!
Yet now by grace brought nigh to Him
Through faith in Jesus' blood.
3 So nigh, so very nigh 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 wherewith He loves the Son,
Such is His love to me.
5 Why should I ever anxious be
Since such a God is mine?
He watches o'er me night and day,
And tells me, "Thou art Mine".
