Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Soon I shall leave all the burdens of life,
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him.
Mine eyes shall close to earth’s care and its strife,
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him.

Refrain:
With my blest Lord in the haven of peace,
Rest will be mine, with Him divine,
Anchored at last where all sorrow shall cease,
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him.

2 Soon I shall be where my tears cannot flow,
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him.
In that blest homeland no grief can I known,
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him. [Refrain]

3 Loved ones have gone with their Saviour to be,
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him.
When I shall join them, what joy it will be!
At rest with Him,
At rest with Him. [Refrain]
