Representative Text

1 Since I came at Jesus’ bidding,
And received the promised rest,
I have found His ways most pleasant,
And His paths serene and blest;
Trials have been changed to conquests,
Sighs are lost in songs of praise;
And all turmoil, care and conflict
Are transformed by hope’s bright rays.

I have found it, I have found it,
That for which I’ve been in quest,
Satisfied are all my longings,
Now I’ve found His promised rest.

2 On His love my rest is founded,
And no storms that Rock can shake,
Though the winds may blow about it,
And the waves against it break;
Not a doubt can mar this trysting,
Not a fear disturb my calm,
Nor a weapon formed against me,
Do my peaceful spirit harm. [Refrain]

3 Oh, this rest the Savior gives me,
Is the pearl of greatest worth,
In its preciousness and comfort,
Far surpassing gems of earth!
Moth and rust cannot corrupt it,
Naught shall rob this treasure mine,
For the rest is His who gave it,
And is kept by grace divine. [Refrain]
