Representative Text

1 We shall sweetly rest in thee,
O thou Lamb of Calvary!
When our sins are washed away,
And our spirits leave their clay.
We shall rest, sweetly rest,
We shall sweetly rest in thee.

Refrain:
We shall sweetly rest in thee,
O thou Lamb of Calvary;
When from all our sorrows free,
We shall sweetly rest in thee.

2 When temptations all are past,
When no doubts our faith o’ercast,
When from sin forever free,
We shall sweetly rest in thee.
We shall rest, sweetly rest,
We shall sweetly rest in thee. [Refrain]

3 When all earthly prospects fail,
When we’ve passed the gloomy vale;
When from all our sorrows free,
We shall sweetly rest in thee.
We shall rest, sweetly rest,
We shall sweetly rest in thee. [Refrain]
