Rest Now!

No more sorrow

will be yours,

No more burdens

will you bear,

No more heartaches

will you endure,

Weighted down

with endless care,

Rest now!

While here on earth you did you best,

A friend to all you

tried to be.

This day you

have no regrets.

This day from sorrow

you are free.

Rest, now!

No more will you

fret and worry

About what a

day may bring,

You have gone to that city,

where God’s

Holy Angels sing,

Rest Now!
