Representative Text

1 After the toil and turmoil,
After the strife is past,
Cometh the peace God giveth,—
Cometh the rest at last.

Refrain:
Rest, sweet rest for the weary,
After the toil and pain,
Sleep for the well-beloved,
Crowns will the victors gain.

2 They who have fought and conquer’d,
Waging a war with sin,
Into the heavenly city
Gladly will enter in. [Refrain]

3 Rest for the worn and weary,
Shelter for all the lost,
And in the blessed haven,
Anchor the tempest-tossed. [Refrain]
