Rest in the Lord, O wea­ry, hea­vy la­den,
Look unto Him, your ev­er pre­sent guide;
Rest in the Lord, whose Word is truth eter­nal;
Leave all to Him, what­ev­er may be­tide.

Rest in the Lord, and tell Him all your sor­row;
Trust in His love, so bound­less, full and free;
He will not leave, nor will He e’er for­sake you;
Rest in the Lord, and sweet your rest shall be.

Rest in the Lord, and when your toil is ov­er,
When ev­ery storm and dan­ger you have passed,
Lo! He has said, whose Word abid­eth ever,
You shall re­ceive His Wel­come home at last.
