Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

203. Sweet Land of Rest

1 Sweet land of rest, for thee I sigh!
When will the moment come,
When I shall lay my armor by,
And dwell with Christ at home,
And dwell with Christ at home
And dwell with Christ at home;
When I shall lay my armor by,
And dwell with Christ at home.

2 No tranquil joys on earth I know,
No peaceful sheltering dome;
This world's a wilderness of woe,
This world is not my home,
This world is not my home;
This world is not my home
This world's a wilderness of woe,
This world is not my home.

3 To Jesus Christ I fled for rest,
He bade me cease to roam;
But fly for succor to his breast
And he’d conduct me home.

4 Weary of wand’ring round and round
This vale of sin and gloom,
I long to leave th’unhallowed ground,
And dwell with Christ at home.
