This song was written by Jim Brady, and was recorded by The Booth Brothers… included on their album, Room For More.
Jim Brady joined the Booth Brothers as baritone singer in 2002. He is also a successful Southern Gospel songwriter. Jim owns his own publishing company, Brady House Publishing. He also performed with the Shulers. In 2014, Jim Brady left the Booth Brothers and started a new group in 2015 called the Jim Brady Trio.
The long history of the Booth Brothers starts when Ron Booth, Sr. was a teenager and formed the original group with brothers Charles Booth, James Booth, and Wallace Booth after moving to Detroit in the late ’50s.
They sang locally and regionally until 1963, when Ron Sr. disbanded the group and started singing with the Toney Brothers. Though these quartets never achieved much more fame than the musical portion of the neighborhood church picnic, Ron Booth, Sr. was a deeply spiritual and musical person after he married and moved south to Brandon, Florida, and had two sons and raised them to be musicians.
In 1990, the youngest of his sons, Michael Booth, formed the second incarnation of the Booth Brothers by recruiting his father and his brother Ronnie Booth, Jr. With the addition of pianist Tim Sievert, the quartet started singing under the name Ron Booth & the Booth Brothers. A few years later, Sievert left the band due to increasing hand problems, but they continued as a trio… made up of Michael Booth – tenor,
Ronnie Booth – lead, and Jim Brady – baritone.
They are known for their tight, smooth harmony.
This song encouraged believers to trust God when in tough times.

Wonderful peace… When the cares of life seem more than I can handle
and clouds of doubt have settled in my soul;
when everywhere I turn the storm is raging, into the Savior’s loving arms I go.
There is peace in the shelter of His arms;
a refuge from the storm where I am safe from harm.
Through the strongest winds and pouring rain,
there’s peace in the shelter of His arms.
There’s never been a moment on this journey that I have been forsaken or alone,
‘cause every time I face the unexpected my Father gently leads through the unknown.(CHORUS)
There’s peace that passes all understanding
and peace that goes beyond all comprehending;
peace in the shelter of His arms…
a refuge from the storm where I am safe from harm
Through the strongest winds and pouring rain, there’s peace in the shelter of His arms.
There’s peace in the shelter of His arms… wonderful peace.
