    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.
