~ My Resting Place ~

My Resting Place

I hear a voice.
The sound of my beloved ‘tis He.
My heart rejoice.
His lovely voice is calling me
To quickly come aside
And hear what He would say.
In Him I safely hide
And there I want to stay.

Under His tree
Sheltered there from earthly night
His fruit to me
Fills my soul with great delight.
None can to Him compare
It’s He who makes me whole.
He’s fairer than the fair,
The chiefest to my soul.

All by his grace,
Here I find eternal rest,
This lovely place,
Leaning on His lovely breast
‘Til earthly life is passed
And I am on my way,
‘Til day break comes at last
And shadows flee away.
