    Verse 1
    I will rest and tell the story,
    How He won my sinful heart;
    How He brought me to the Fountain,
    Where I never will depart.

    Chorus
    Oh, the rapture that awaits me,
    When I'm done on earth below!
    How I'll rest within His bosom,
    How I'll love Him ever more!

    Verse 2
    Oh, my soul is waiting, longing,
    I would leave this vale of tears;
    I would fly beyond the regions,
    Where the soul will have no fears.

    Chorus
    Oh, the rapture that awaits me,
    When I'm done on earth below!
    How I'll rest within His bosom,
    How I'll love Him ever more!

    Verse 3
    Yes, my work is nearly over,
    For my Saviour soon will come,
    He will take me home to Glory,
    Where I'll be at rest with Him.

    Chorus
    Oh, the rapture that awaits me,
    When I'm done on earth below!
    How I'll rest within His bosom,
    How I'll love Him ever more!

    Verse 4
    Jesus, Jesus, how I've suffered;
    How the billows high have rolled;
    How my soul has nearly fainted
    As I tried to reach the goal.

    Chorus
    Oh, the rapture that awaits me,
    When I'm done on earth below!
    How I'll rest within His bosom,
    How I'll love Him ever more!

    Verse 5
    But at last within the portals,
    Tears and suffering all are past,
    He will fold me to His bosom,
    Whispering, ''Child you're safe at last.''

    Chorus
    Oh, the rapture that awaits me,
    When I'm done on earth below!
    How I'll rest within His bosom,
    How I'll love Him ever more!
