REST FOR WEARY SOULS




Does the gospel–word proclaim
Rest, for those who weary be?
Then, my soul, put in thy claim,
Sure that promise speaks to thee:


Marks of grace I cannot show,
All polluted is my best;
Yet I weary am I know,
And the weary long for rest.


Burdened with a load of sin,
Harassed with tormenting doubt,
Hourly conflicts from within,
Hourly crosses from without:


All my little strength is gone,
Sink I must without supply;
Sure upon the earth is none
Can more weary be than I.


In the ark, the weary dove
Found a welcome resting–place;
Thus my spirit longs to prove
Rest in CHRIST, the ark of grace:


Tempest–tossed I long have been,
And the flood increases fast;
Open, LORD, and take me in,
Till the storm be overpast.


Safely lodged within thy breast,
What a wondrous change I find!
Now I know thy promised rest
Can compose a troubled mind


You that weary are like me,
Hearken to the gospel call;
To the ark for refuge flee,
JESUS will receive you all!
