Like a Mighty River Flowing

Like a mighty river flowing,
like a flower in beauty growing,
far beyond all human knowing
   is the perfect peace of God.

Like the hills serene and even,
like the coursing clouds of heaven,
like the heart that's been forgiven
   is the perfect peace of God.

Like the summer breezes playing,
like the tall trees softly swaying,
like the lips of silent praying
   is the perfect peace of God.

Like the morning sun ascended,
like the scents of evening blended,
like a friendship never ended
   is the perfect peace of God.

Like the azure ocean swelling,
like the jewel all-excelling,
far beyond our human telling
   is the perfect peace of God.
