1 Rest in the Lord and patiently wait;
Believe on His word, His mercy is great;
Rest in His love and fear not, for He,
Tho’ dark be the hour, thy refuge shall be.

Refrain:
Rest in the Lord, and patiently wait,
Rest in the Lord, His mercy is great.

2 Rest in the Lord and grieve not, nor fret;
Thy works He’ll reward, He cannot forget;
Rest in His love and fear not, for He,
Tho’ dark be the hour, thy refuge shall be. [Refrain]

3 Rest in the Lord, He’ll calm all Thy fears;
He’ll bear all thy burdens, dry all thy tears;
Rest in His love and fear not, for He,
Tho’ dark be the hour, thy refuge shall be. [Refrain]
