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

Into eternity,

We shall obtain a perfect rest

For we with Christ shall be!
