Representative Text

1 From this bleak hill of storms
Enter thy rest;
To yon bright sunny heights
Enter thy rest;
Where love for ever shines,
Enter into rest;
Enter into rest,
The rest of God.

2 From hunger and from thirst,
Enter thy rest;
From toil and weariness.
Enter thy rest.
From shadows and from dreams,
Enter into rest;
Enter into rest,
The rest of God.

3 From vanity and lies,
Enter thy rest;
From mocking and from snares,
Enter thy rest.
From disappointed hopes,
Enter into rest;
Enter into rest,
The rest of God.

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
