1 How oft when I’m weary and sorrow oppressed,
I long for the home where no harm can molest;
O may we all meet in the land of the blest,
And rest in the arms of the Savior.

Refrain:
Rest in the arms of my Savior,
Rest in the arms of my Savior;
I want to go there to those mansions so fair,
To rest in the arms of my Savior.

2 How sweet it will be when we meet on that strand,
And hear the glad songs of the heavenly land;
O may we be found of the purified band,
And rest in the arms of the Savior. [Refrain]

3 The way may be rough and the journey be long,
The battle be hard with temptation and wrong;
But when we have reached Heaven’s glorified throng,
We’ll rest in the arms of the Savior. [Refrain]

4 When Jesus doth call us, the conflict will cease.
From every burden we’ll find sweet release;
Our souls shall rejoice in eternity’s peace,
And rest in the arms of the Savior. [Refrain]
