Representative Text

1 Soon shall I rest in Jesus,
Rest in his dear embrace,
Ev'n to a life eternal,
Saved by redeeming grace.
Soon shall I hear their greeting,
Friends that in days of yore
Sung of the holy city,
Longed for the golden shore.

Soon shall I rest in Jesus,
Rest in his dear embrace.
Ev'n to a life eternal,
Saved by redeeming grace.

2 Trusting my all with Jesus,
Why should my faith decline?
What if I toil and labor,
Waiting the harvest time?
What if my path be rugged?
Jesus that path hath trod,
Leaving a lamp to guide me
Up to the throne of God. [Refrain]

3 Soon will my sheaves be gathered,
Soon will my work be done;
Then I shall rise triumphant,
Then will my crown be won.
Oh, what a glorious vision
Comes to my raptured sight—
Fields of immortal verdure,
Skies of unclouded light. [Refrain]
