Verse 1
Rest in the Lord ? from harps above
The music seems to thrill ?
Rest in His everlasting love
Rest and be still.

Verse 2
Rest thou, who claimest for thine own
Thy chosen bride today,
Affianced in His faith alone
Thy bride for aye.

Verse 3
And thou, whose trustful hand is given
Avouching here thy spouse,
Rest, for a Father seals in heaven
His children's vows.

Verse 4
Rest ye, who cluster round them both
To mingle praise and prayers;
Your God affirms the plighted troth,
Your God and theirs.

Verse 5
Rest, for the Heavenly Bridegroom here
Is standing by your side,
And in this union draws more near
His mystic bride.

Verse 6
Rest in the Lord ? thrice Holy Dove,
In us Thy word fulfil ?
Rest in His everlasting love,
Rest and be still.
