99. 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.

Refrain:
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,
Changed 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 peaceful habitation,
What a quiet resting-place! (Refrain)
