#270: The Haven of Rest

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

My soul in sad exile was out on life’s sea,

So burdened with sin, and distrest,

Till I heard a sweet voice saying, “Make me your choice!”

And I entered the Haven of Rest.

CHORUS

I’ve anchored my soul in the Haven of Rest,

I’ll sail the wide seas no more;

The tempest may sweep o’er the wild, story deep —

In Jesus I’m safe evermore.

2

I yielded myself to His tender embrace,

And, faith taking hold of the Word,

My  fetters fell off, and I anchored my soul —

The “Haven of Rest” is my Lord.

CHORUS

3

Te song of my soul, since the Lord made me whole,

Has been the old story so blest

Of Jesus, who’ll save whosoever will have

A home in the Haven of Rest!

CHORUS

4

O come to the Savior — He patiently waits

To save by His power divine;

Come, anchor your soul in the Haven of Rest,

And say, “My Beloved is mine.”

CHORUS
