I believe this song was sung by the Blackwood Brothers...does anyone know the lyrics?

Verse 1:
Peace like a river
Flows thru my soul
I've been forgiven
Cleansed and made whole

Verse 2:
Peace gently flowing
Sweet and divine
Gives assurance
Jesus is mine.

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 with the Spitit
I am so glad, happy and glad,
Jesus has given, sweetly has give, wonderful peace.
Glory forever to Jesus my Saviour, for wonderful, marvelous, heavenly peace,
Peace overflowing, much sweeter is growing, what wonderful, wonderful peace

Thank you, Mary Lou. My husband and I bought a great CD which included this song, and my husband (a great bass) wanted the lyrics so we can sing along. We surely appreciate your posting this!

Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver also recorded this one, but the only CD I have is a collection of their bluegrass gospel (I love it!)

Surprisingly, the song was published in an early 1970's hymnal, small and maroon hardcover, maybe by the Nazarene church. Sadly, I gave the hymnal away to someone else but maybe you can find it. For certain, there is a great bass line. In fact, I think there's a YouTube video of Doyle and the gang singing that very song.

This song has been in my head for days. I first heard it as a young teen in the early 60s at gospel sings sung by J.D. Sumner and the Blackwood Brothers. My dad loved gospel music and we were raised on it. Nothing like r part harmony. My favorit song is Oh What A Savior!
