Representative Text

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

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]
