2142. Blessed Quietness

1 Joys are flowing like a river,
since the Comforter has come;
Christ abides with us forever,
makes the trusting heart a 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 heavenly Guest
banished unbelief and sadness,
changed our weariness to rest. [Refrain]

3 Like the rain that falls from heaven,
like the sunlight from the sky,
so the Spirit, too, 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 Christ's face,
what a peaceful habitation,
what a quiet resting place. [Refrain]
