[Verse 1]
A                C7     D
Joys are flowing like a river,
          A             E
Since the Comforter has come.
A                 C7  D
He abides with us for-ever,
          A        E7        A
Makes the trusting heart His home.

[Chorus]
A                       D
Blessed quietness! Holy quietness!
        A             E
What as-surance in my soul!
A                       D
On the stormy sea Jesus speaks to me,
        A       E7       A
And the billows cease to roll.

[Verse 2]
A                 C7         D
Bringing life and health and gladness,
      A                     E
All a-round, this heav'n-ly Guest.
A                 C7  D
Banished unbelief and sadness;
        A     E7      A
And we just o-bey and rest.

[Chorus]
A                       D
Blessed quietness! Holy quietness!
        A             E
What as-surance in my soul!
A                       D
On the stormy sea Jesus speaks to me,
        A       E7       A
And the billows cease to roll.

[Verse 3]
A                   C7        D
Like the rain that falls from heaven,
         A                 E
Like the sunlight from the sky,
A                 C7  D
So the Holy Ghost is given,
       A     E7      A
Coming on us from on high.

[Chorus]
A                       D
Blessed quietness! Holy quietness!
        A             E
What as-surance in my soul!
A                       D
On the stormy sea Jesus speaks to me,
        A       E7       A
And the billows cease to roll.

[Verse 4]
A               C7       D
See, a fruitful field is growing,
        A                   E
Blessed fruit of righ-teous-ness;
A                       C7  D
And the streams of life are flowing,
       A      E7     A
In the lonely wilder-ness.

[Chorus]
A                       D
Blessed quietness! Holy quietness!
        A             E
What as-surance in my soul!
A                       D
On the stormy sea Jesus speaks to me,
        A       E7       A
And the billows cease to roll.

[Verse 5]
A             C7      D
What a wonder-ful sal-vation,
         A              E
Where we always see His face!
A                    C7 D
What a peaceful hab -i- tation!
       A     E7      A
What a quiet resting place!

[Chorus]
A                       D
Blessed quietness! Holy quietness!
        A             E
What as-surance in my soul!
A                       D
On the stormy sea Jesus speaks to me,
        A       E7       A
And the billows cease to roll.
