Representative Text

1 O, brother, beloved in Christ Jesus,
I hail thee as one of the blest;
Our God hath redeemed and hath saved thee,
But, O, hast thou entered His rest?

Refrain:
There remaineth a rest for God’s people,
O, fear and anxiety cease!
If Jesus hath satisfied haven,
His people on earth may have peace.

2 Think not that His rest is in heaven,
Tho’ heaven is promised thee, too;
But here on the earth mid its turmoil,
A heaven is waiting for you. [Refrain]

3 For Jesus on Calvary’s mountain,
By dying thy penalty paid,
And rendered to God an oblation
Which peace everlasting hath made. [Refrain]

4 O, cease from thy works and thy labor,
Thy doubt and misgiving give o’er;
Let joy and let peace in believing
Thy sin-wounded spirit restore. [Refrain]
