1 Lord, I believe a rest remains
To all Thy people known,
A rest where pure enjoyment reigns,
And Thou art loved alone.
I rest upon His promise, sure;
I come, I wait, to prove
The cleansing of my heart from sin,
The fullness of His love.
2 A rest where all our soul’s desire
Is fixed on things above;
Where fear, and sin, and grief expire,
Cast out by perfect love. [Refrain]
3 Oh! that I now the rest might know,
Believe, and enter in!
Now, Saviour, now the pow’r bestow,
And let me cease from sin. [Refrain]
4 Remove this hardness from my heart,
This unbelief remove:
To me the rest of faith impart,
The Sabbath of Thy love. [Refrain]
