Rest of the weary - Rest
(John S. B. Monsell/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Rest.

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!

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!

3. When my feet stumble,
  I'll to thee cry;
crown of the humble,
  cross of the high.
When my steps wander,
  over me bend,
truer and fonder,
  Saviour and Friend!

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.

John S. B. Monsell, in: Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 412-413;
and in: Charles Rogers: Lyra Britannica, 1867, 410-411.
