Shalom, Shalom, the peace of God,
Complete and whole in Him;
No strife, no war, His love is good,
And I am blessed within.
Shalom, Shalom, at peace with God,
His gift of righteousness;
No wrath, no fear, no awesome dread,
Just loving tenderness.
Shalom, Shalom, my God of peace,
A Prince and Saviour He;
Of love unbounding, full of grace,
And great in majesty.
Shalom, Shalom, O perfect peace,
My heart on Jesus stayed;
I gaze upon the sacrifice,
On Whom my sins are laid.
Shalom, Shalom, my righteousness,
My hope, my life, my all;
My God, my end, my happiness,
Before You Lord I fall.
(Tune: Ballerma; CM)
