Rest! Rest! O Blessed Rest!—Don Fortner
(Tune: This Is My Father’s World #39—SMD)
Rest! Rest! O blessed rest!
How sweet to rest in Christ!
By faith in Him we have entered
Into a blessed rest.
Refrain: O weary soul, would you
Find rest, sweet rest today?
Come, trust your soul on Jesus Christ,
Upon His merits lay.
Conscience is now at rest,
Freed from the guilt of sin;
The precious blood of Christ has purged,
Has purged away our sin!
Trusting the providence
Of our great sov’reign God
We rest, for He has said that He
Will do His people good.
When we by death shall pass
We shall obtain a perfect rest
For we with Christ shall be!
