1 There’s a place where my soul ever feels a repose
That the world and its joys cannot give;
Where the blessings of heaven their sweetness disclose,
And in answer to prayer I receive.

Refrain:
‘Tis the house of the Lord, ‘tis the Christian’s retreat,
Where I oft get a glimpse of the goal;
‘Tis the foot of the Cross, ‘tis the dear mercy seat,
‘Tis the place I find rest to my soul.

2 There’s a place where my Saviour has promised to meet,
And bestow what in faith I may ask;
Where to work is a pleasure and service is sweet,
And where duty is never a task. [Refrain]

3 There’s a place of all others the dearest—the best;
I have roamed for its equal in vain;
But I ever return to this eden of rest,
With a vow that I’ll ever remain. [Refrain]

4 There’s a place the most favored beneath the blue sky,
Where the sweetest of pastures abound;
And I pray the good Lord, when my time comes to die,
In this Good Shepherds’ fold I’ll be found. [Refrain]
