    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.
