1 Touch my spirit with thy Spirit,
Lord of All, my Saviour;
Let me thy sweet rest inherit,
This my highest favor.

Refrain:
Rest, sweet rest, rest, sweet rest
In my blessed Saviour;
Rest, sweet rest, rest, sweet rest
In my blessed Saviour.

2 I have found him, what a treasure!—
Found my blessed Saviour;
This the pleasure of all pleasures,
Rest in my dear Saviour. [Refrain]

3 I have found him: past my weeping,
Blessed, blessed Saviour;
And my soul to thy kind keeping
I commit, dear Saviour. [Refrain]

4 On the earth this heavenly resting
Comes to me, dear Saviour;
This is love’s own manifesting
Through my blessed Saviour. [Refrain]

5 In this rest toil does not weary,—
Toil for thee, my Saviour;
In the gloom there’s nothing dreary,
With thee, O my Saviour. [Refrain]
