1 There is an hour of hallowed peace
For those with care oppressed,
When sighs and tears for aye shall cease,
And all be hushed to rest.
2 ‘Tis when the soul is freed from fears
And doubts here here annoy;
Then they that oft have sown in tears
Shall reap again in joy.
3 There is a home of sweet repose,
Where storms assail no more;
The stream of endless pleasure flows
On that celestial shore.
4 There purity with love appears,
And bliss without alloy;
There they that oft had sown in tears
Shall reap eternal joy.
