1 Once more at rest, my peaceful thoughts are blending,
Once more, O Lord, Thy loving smile I see;
For softly now the twilight shades descending
Have closed, and left my heart alone with Thee.
Still, still I hear Thy words of consolation
That gave me hope when I was sorely tried;
And since that hour of hallowed meditation,
Thy counsel, Lord, has been my only guide.
2 Once more at rest, my cares awhile forsaking,
I thank Thee, Lord, for vict’ries I have won;
For strength and grace, when earthly ties were breaking,
To trust in Thee, and say, “Thy will be done.” [Refrain]
3 Once more at rest, I view the silent river,
Whose placid waves Thy love will bear me o’er;
There, home at last, my raptured soul for ever
Will fold her wings, where sorrow comes no more. [Refrain]
