How Sweet Is My Rest

Author: Barney Elliott Warren Meter: 11.8.11.9.11.9 Appears in 4 hymnals Hymnal Title: Calvin Hymnary Project First Line: How sweet is the comfort and rest of my soul Refrain First Line: O, how sweet is my rest Lyrics: 1 How sweet is the comfort and rest of my soul, Where peace doth so tranquilly flow; Though storm-cloud and tempest and dark billows roll, All my heart with His sunlight doth glow. Refrain: How sweet is my rest! And how richly I’m blest! Oh, how sweet is the rest of my soul! 2 No fears shall alarm me though Satan be nigh, He’s subject to Jesus’ control; Though tempted and tried, Christ regardeth my cry, Truly He is the joy of my soul. [Refrain] 3 My sins all are gone, oh, what rapture to know They’re nailed to the cross where He died; The blood doth atone and my heart doth o’erflow, Praise the Lord for the soul-cleansing tide! [Refrain] 4 I’m saved even now, and though death soon may come, No harm shall it bring to my soul; For all it can do is to carry me home, To be safe while the ages shall roll. [Refrain] Select Hymns, 1911 (Timeless Truths)
