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]
