Representative Text

1 I know there’s a rest that remaineth for me,
A rest when my journey is o’er;
I know that the ransomed in bliss I shall see,
And labor and sorrow no more.

Then onward I’ll go, and with courage I’ll tread
The path my Redeemer has trod,
Since He hath declared there remaineth a rest,
A rest for the people of God.

2 I know there’s a rest that remaineth for me,
A rest with my Savior above,
Where, clothed in His image, His face I shall see,
And feast on the smile of His love. [Refrain]

3 I know there’s a rest that remaineth for me;
I’ll patiently wait till it come—
Till angels shall bear me away on their wings,
And Jesus shall welcome me home. [Refrain]
