Lyrics

While wayworn and weary, I journey along,
Dear Savior, Thy love is the theme of my song;
Thy smile is my beacon, as onward I move;
Thy cross is my shelter, I rest in Thy love.

Refrain

I rest in Thy love, yes, rest in Thy love,
Tho’ wayworn and weary, I rest in Thy love,
Rest in Thy love, yes, rest in Thy love.

While burdened with sorrow, and laden with woe,
Dear Savior, to Thee, ’neath Thy cross will I go;
I think of Thy sorrow, and anguish for me,
And yield at Thy bidding, my sorrows to Thee.

Refrain
