Verse 1
Rest of the weary, joy of the sad;
Hope of the dreary, light of the glad;
Home of the stranger, strength to the end,
Refuge from danger, Saviour and Friend.

Verse 2
Pillow where, lying, love rests its head;
Peace of the dying, life of the dead;
Path of the lowly, prize at the end;
Breath of the holy, Saviour and Friend.

Verse 3
When my feet stumble to Thee I'll cry,
Crown of the humble, cross of the high;
When my steps, wander, over me bend,
Truer and fonder, Saviour and Friend.

Verse 4
Ever confessing Thee, I will raise
Unto Thee blessing, glory, and praise;
All my endeavour, world without end,
Thine to be ever, Saviour and Friend.
