Representative Text

1 Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest;
Night treads close upon the heels of day,
There is no other resting place this way,
The rock is near,
The well is clear,
Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest!

2 Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest;
Worn by journey are thy weary feet,
Turn now, O Pilgrim, to this calm retreat,
Oh, sweetly rest,
By care oppressed,
Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest!

3 Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest;
They who slumber by the Rock so dear,
Awake rejoicing, for their home is near;
Beneath its shade,
Thy bed is made:
Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest!
