Hymn/Song Information

RESTING FROM THEIR LABOURS




Upwards I raise my longing eyes,
And eager view the distant prize,
Where ransomed souls released from pain,
For ever dwell and ever reign.


Safe landed, now their work is done,
And with their guilt, their griefs are gone;
No enemy can reach them there,
No wants thy feel, not dangers fear.


Blessings immense employ their tongues,
Love is the burden of their songs;
That love which first imparted breath,
And saved them from the second death.


There may I have my fixed abode,
Near my Redeemer and my God,
Where seas of bliss for ever flow,
And all that goodness can bestow.
