Representative Text

1 Sweet rest in Jesus,
Home of the soul,
Growing more precious,
While ages shall roll.

Home, home,
Home for all the blest;
Home, home,
Precious home of rest.

2 Sweet rest in Jesus,
While here we stay;
And He’s prepared us
A home far away. [Refrain]

3 Sweet rest in Jesus,
Home in the skies—
It must be glorious,
Where man never dies. [Refrain]

4 Sweet rest in Jesus,
There to abide,
Ever victorious,
Where naught can betide. [Refrain]
