497. Near to the Heart of God

1 There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God;
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain:
O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God;
Hold us, who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God.

2 There is a place of comfort sweet,
Near to the heart of God;
A place where we our Savior meet,
Near to the heart of God. [Refrain]

3 There is a place of full release,
Near to the heart of God;
A place where all is joy and peace,
Near to the heart of God. [Refrain]
