Are you tired of sin and sorrow?
Does your cross seem hard to bear?
There is rest in the Lord;
Cease to roam in sin’s dark valley,
And renounce your load of care.
There is rest in the Lord.

Refrain

There is rest in the Lord,
There is rest in the Lord,
Bid farewell to sin and sorrow,
Close your eyes to worldly joys,
There is rest in the Lord.

Peace you will not find while roving,
For the world no peace can give,
There is rest in the Lord;
Come repenting and believing,
Choose a better life to live.
There is rest in the Lord.

Refrain

Linger not with Satan’s forces,
Doubting what he’s promised you,
There is rest in the Lord;
Conquer all your fears and doubtings,
Come and join the faithful few,
There is rest in the Lord.

Refrain
