The Haven of Rest

Top of Form 1

Music by: George D. Moore.
Words by: Henry Lake Gilmour, 1890.






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

So burdened with sin and distressed,

Till I heard a sweet voice, saying,

"Make Me your choice";

And I entered the "Haven of Rest"!


Refrain


I've anchored my soul in the "Haven of Rest,"

I'll sail the wide seas no more;

The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep,

In Jesus I'm safe evermore.


I yielded myself to His tender embrace,

In faith taking hold of the Word,

My fetters fell off, and I anchored my soul;

The "Haven of Rest" is my Lord.
