REST FOR THE SOUL




Return, my soul, unto thy rest,
From vain pursuits and maddening cares,
From lonely woes that wring thy breast,
The world’s allurements,—Satan’s snares.


Return unto thy rest, my soul,
From all the wanderings of thy thought,
From sickness unto death made whole,
Safe through a thousand perils brought.


Then to thy rest, my soul, return
From passions every hour at strife;
Sin’s works, and ways, and wages spurn,
Lay hold upon eternal life.


God is thy Rest, —with heart inclined
To keep his Word, that Word believe;
Christ is thy Rest,—with lowly mind,
His light and easy yoke receive.


---Alternative verses---


Return, my soul, unto thy rest,
From vain pursuits and maddening cares,
From lonely woes that wring thy breast,
The world’s alluring, fatal snares.
