«There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.» – Heb. 4:9
1. Rest in the Lord, O weart, heavy laden!
Look unto Him, your ever present Guide;
Rest in the Lord, whose Word is truth eternal;
Leave all to Him, whatever may betide.
2. Rest in the Lord, and tell Him all your sorrow;
Trust in His love, so boundless, full and free;
He will not leave, nor will He e´er forsake you;
Rest in the Lord, and sweet your rest shall be.
3. Rest in the Lord, and when your toil is over;
When ev´ry storm and danger you have pass´d –
Lo! He has said, whose Word abideth ever;
You shall receive His welcome home at last.
