Representative Text

1 Rest, happy rest in Jesus,
The troubled soul may find;
He our Redeemer cometh
The broken heart to bind.

Refrain:
Rest, happy rest in Jesus,
Our every care forgot;
Love that abides forever,
And joy the world knows not.

2 Rest, happy rest in Jesus,
From all our doubts and fears;
Rest in the vales immortal,
Through long unchanging years. [Refrain]

3 Rest, happy rest in Jesus,
From every toil and strife;
Rest at the sacred river,
Beneath the tree of life. [Refrain]

4 Rest, happy rest in Jesus,
Where storms no more shall rise;
Rest where the flow’rs are blooming,
Where beauty never dies. [Refrain]
