Peace Like A River

I am looking for the lyrics to a song called peace like a river. Doyle Lawson sang it on their Gospel Radio Gems album and I cannot make out all of the words.

Hi Mikeylikesit,

Not sure if this is the same as what Doyle Lawson sang--it's a classic old Spiritual:

Verse 1:
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river in my soul,
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river in my soul.

Verse 2:
I've got love like an ocean,
I've got love like an ocean,
I've got love like an ocean in my soul,
I've got love like an ocean,
I've got love like an ocean,
I've got love like an ocean in my soul.

Verse 3:
I've got joy like a fountain,
I've got joy like a fountain,
I've got joy like a fountain in my soul,
I've got joy like a fountain,
I've got joy like a fountain,
I've got joy like a fountain in my soul.

Hope this is the one you were thinking of...if not, let me know and I can dig further.

Thanks :)
Steve

Thats not it. it goes like this

peace like a river,
flows through my soul
I've been forgiven,
cleansed and made whole

Thats the lead. the countermelody at the same goes

peace like a river, peace like a river,
flows through my soul, flows through my soul....

Ah, I see. Yes, I figured the spiritual was too easy :)

Try this one:

Words and music:
Lead: Charles Davis (verses) and C.D. Davis (chorus)

Lyrics:

Peace (peace like a river) like a river (peace like a river)
Flows (flows through my soul) through my soul (flows through my soul)
I've (I've been forgiven) been forgiven (I've been forgiven)
Cleansed (cleansed and made whole) and made whole (cleansed and made whole)

Chorus:
Peace like a river so gently is flowing
How sweet to my soul is this marvelous peace
Sweeter and sweeter each day it is growing
Like billows of glory it never shall cease

Filled (filled with the spirit) with the spirit (filled with the spirit)
I (I am so glad) am so happy (happy and glad)
Jesus (Jesus has given) has given (sweetly has given)
Wonderful (wonderful peace) peace (wonderful peace)

Peace (peace gently flowing) gently flowing (peace gently flowing)
Sweet (sweet and divine) and divine (sweet and divine)
This (this the assurance) the assurance (this the assurance)
Jesus (Jesus is mine) is mine (Jesus is mine)

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Verse 2

Glory forever to Jesus my Savior
For wonderful, marvelous, heavenly peace
Peace overflowing much sweeter is growing
What wonderful, wonderful peace
