Representative 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]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
