1 There’s a stillness in the air,
And a vision, bright and fair,
Of the glory which surrounds the holy place;
For my soul with joy is filled,
And my being now is thrilled
With a blessed, peaceful, holy quietness.
O this holy quietness! Holy quietness!
Restful moment of the bliss!
How my heart with joy is filled!
And my soul and being thrilled
With peaceful, holy quietness.
2 Thro’ the veil I now have come
To the sacred upper room
Where my Lord, and Savior, sits in majesty;
Being reconciled to him,
And his Spirit now within,
All my soul is hush’d in holy ecstacy. [Refrain]
3 In this blessed upper room
I am perfectly at home,
For my rest in Jesus here is made complete;
All my struggles now are past,
And my rest has come at last,
At this holy, quiet, peaceful mercy-seat. [Refrain]
4 O! this calm and heav’nly joy,
Nothing ever can destroy
While his Spirit guards and keeps the holy place;
While I trust without a fear,
No discordant sounds I hear,
To disturb my soul from resting in His grace. [Refrain]
