O God, a world of empty show - At rest
(Frances Bevan/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

At rest.

Isaiah 40,11.

1. O God, a world of empty show,
  dark wilds of restless, fruitless quest
lie round me wheresoe'er I go:
  within, with thee, is rest. (PDF - Midi)

2. And sated with the weary sum
  of all men think, and hear, and see,
O more than mother's heart, I come,
  a tirèd child to thee.

3. Sweet childhood of eternal life!
  Whilst troubled days and years go by,
in stillness hushed from stir and strife,
  within thine Arms I lie.

4. Thine Arms, to whom I turn and cling
  with thirsting soul that longs for thee;
as rain that makes the pastures sing,
  art thou, my God, to me.

G. T. S.
