    Verse 1
    The light of the day of rest
    Gently fades off from our sight
    Just like the evening sunset
    Of the Christian's pilgrimage

    Verse 2
    Daylight dies; and the earth is
    Wrapped in blanket of the night
    Peace serene is felt around
    At the close of day of rest.

    Verse 3
    Perfect peace now fills the earth
    Sent by God from heav'n above
    Like the praise that fills the heart
    That from sin has been set free

    Verse 4
    Still the spirit lingers near
    The hungry and thirsty soul
    Who lift their hearts to the throne
    To seek earnestly his grace

    Verse 5
    Jesus lord, grant that our rest
    May be filled with joy in thee
    Till our hearts shall take its rest
    In the 'ternal heav'n of rest
