#270: The Haven of Rest

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


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.


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.


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.



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!



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.”
