The Haven Of Rest Lyrics & Chords
Written by Henry L. Gilmour
(D)My soul in sad exile was (G)out on life’s s(D)ea,
So burdened with sin and di(A)stressed,
Till I (D)heard a sweet voice, saying, (G)“Make Me your (D)choice”;
And I entered the (A)“Haven of (D)Rest”!
I’ve (G)anchored my soul in the (D)“Haven of Rest,”
I’ll sail the wide seas no (A)more;
The (D)tempest may sweep over (G)wild, stormy, (D)deep,
In Jesus I’m (A)safe ever(D)more.
I (D)yielded myself to His (G)tender em(D)brace,
In faith taking hold of the (A)Word,
My (D)fetters fell off, and I (G)anchored my (D)soul;
The “Haven of (A)Rest” is my (D)Lord.
(D)The song of my soul, since the (G)Lord made me (D)whole,
Has been the old story so (A)blest,
Of (D)Jesus, who’ll save whoso(G)ever will (D)have
A home in the (A)“Haven of (D)Rest.”
(D)How precious the thought that we (G)all may (D)recline,
Like John, the beloved so (A)blest,
(D)On Jesus’ strong arm, where no (G)tempest can (D)harm,
Secure in the (A)“Haven of (D)Rest.”
(D)Oh, come to the Savior, He (G)patiently (D)waits
To save by His power (A)divine;
Come, anchor your soul in the (G)“Haven of (D)Rest,”
And say, “My (A)Beloved is (D)mine."
