Hymn/Song Information

Birds have their quiet nests Foxes their




Birds have their quiet nest,
Foxes their holes, and man his peaceful bed;
All creatures have their rest,
But Jesus had not where to lay his head.


And yet he came to give
The weary and the heavy-laden rest:
To bid the sinner live,
And soothe our griefs to slumber on his breast.


Let the birds seek their nest,
Foxes their holes, and man his peaceful bed;
Come, Saviour, in my breast
Come and repose thine oft rejected head!


Come! give me rest, and take
The only rest on earth thou 1ovíst, within
A heart that for thy sake
Shall purify itself from every sin.
