Full Text

Rest of the weary heart,
Soothing and calm;
Love to the wounded heart,
Healing and balm;
Jesus, how sweet Thou art!
Rest to the weary heart.

Peace to the troubled mind:
Tempests are still;
Light to the doubting mind,
Teaching Thy will;
Jesus, Thou art most kind!
Peace to the troubled mind.

Joy to the pilgrim heart,
Song by the way;
Guide to the seeking heart,
Fearful to stray;
Jesus, how good Thou art!
Joy to the pilgrim heart.

Dower of the needy soul,
Brother and Friend;
Heaven of the trusting soul,
Life without end;
Jesus, my all control,
Dower of the needy soul.
