Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #78

Welcome to the 78th Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing!

I miss the old hymns that I remember from my childhood - there were no drums, no electric guitar and no mind numbing beat. It was just voices and maybe a piano or an organ. The choir led the congregation in singing - and the words of these hymns are poetic. I realize that there is a need for the modern "seeker oriented" worship music - but it is also necessary to have deeper songs (no offense intended to anyone who prefers the newer church songs).

I decided to have an "Old Fashion Sunday Hymn Sing" once a month on this blog.
I personally do NOT have a great singing voice - I used to play the guitar & piano but my voice is NOT an instrument. That's the great thing about this digital hymn sing, you can warble along without being embarrassed or without offending anyone else.

The hymns that we will be studying are taken from an old hymnal from a Baptist church that is no longer in existence - "The North American Hymnal" published in 1956 by "THE ROGER WILLIAMS PRESS"

I will also try to find a version of the featured hymn on "YouTube" to share with you each month.

Today's featured hymn is "Peace, Perfect Peace" written by Edward H. Bickersteth (1826-1906).    
Today's featured author was an Anglican minister (following in his father's footsteps).  He wrote 12 books of hymns, poems and sermons.

"Fruit of the Spirit #3 - PEACE"

I have included 2 versions of this lovely hymn (below the lyrics).  Enjoy!

Turn with me to number 420 in your hymnals and let's sing:

Peace, Perfect Peace
written by Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr. (1826-1906)  & composed by George Caldbeck (1852-1918)

1. Peace, perfect peace, In this dark world of sin?  The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

2.   Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?  To dothe will of Jesus, this is rest.

3.   Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?  On Jesus' bosom naught but calm is found.

4. Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?  Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

5.   Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours!  Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

6.   It is enough:  earth's struggles soon shall cease, And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace.

A special thanks to "The Acappella Company" for sharing this with us!
