110. Joys Are Flowing like a River (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 he speaks peace to me--
how 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,
where we always see his face!
What a perfect habitation,
what a quiet resting place! [Refrain]
