Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Rest at Home

Full Text

1 Weary not, O troubled soul,
Tho' the waves like mountains roll,
O'er the stormy billows' foam,
Child of God, there's rest at home.

Rest at home, rest at home,
With thy Saviour rest at home;
Far beyond the ocean's foam,
Child of God, there's rest at home.

2 Weary not, O toiling one,
For thy work will soon be done;
Trust and wait, whate'er befall,
Jesus feels and knows it all. [Refrain]

3 Weary not, tho' skies are dim,
Jesus bids thee look to Him;
In the realms of endless day
He will wipe thy tears away. [Refrain]

4 Weary not, but persevere;
Bear thy cross, thy crown is near;
Learn to do thy Father's will;
Unto death be faithful still. [Refrain]

Coronation Hymns, 1910
