226. Blessed Quietness

1 Joys are flowing like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart His home.

Blessed quietness, Holy quietness,
What assurance in my soul,
On the stormy sea Jesus speaks to me,
And the billows cease to roll.

2 Bringing life and health and gladness
All around this heav'nly Guest,
Banished unbelief and sadness,
Chang'd our weariness to rest. [Refrain]

3 Like the rain that falls from heaven,
Like the sunlight from the sky,
So the Holy Ghost is given,
Coming on us from on high. [Refrain]

4 See, a fruitful field is growing,
Blessed fruit of righteousness;
And the streams of life are flowing
In the lonely wilderness. [Refrain]

5 What a wonderful salvation,
When we always see His face.
What a perfect habitation,
What a quiet resting place. [Refrain]
