REST SWEET REST




Hark! from the joy-land hear the song,
Rest, sweet rest;
Breathed by a soft harp all day long,
Rest, sweet rest;
Out of the pearl-gates bright and fair,
Borne on a sunbeam through the air,
Song for the toil-worn everywhere.
Rest, sweet rest.

Rest, sweet rest, hallowed rest,
Song for the toil-worn everywhere,
Rest, sweet rest.


Still from the joy-land breaks the sound,
Rest,sweet rest;
There where the life-tree fruits abound,
Rest, sweet rest.
Haste to the lovelit skies away,
Haste where the vine leaves ne'er decay,
Faith on her light wings joins the lay,
Rest, sweet rest.

Rest, sweet rest, hallowed rest,
Song for the toil-worn everywhere,
Rest, sweet rest.


Soon in the joy-land we shall know
Rest, sweet rest;
Home where the blue waves murmur low,
Rest, sweet rest.
Rest where the spring-time buds are strown.
Rest where the dear ones all have flown,
Rest where the lone heart finds its own.
Rest, sweet rest.

Rest, sweet rest, hallowed rest,
Song for the toil-worn everywhere,
Rest, sweet rest.
