Return to Thy Rest, My Soul (Hymn by W.Gadsby)

Return to thy rest, my soul, and rejoice;
Let Christ be thy boast, for thou art His choice;
And through sin and Satan, and their hellish guest,
Do vex and dishearten, Jehovah's thy rest.

A sweet resting-place is Jesus to thee;
A fulness of grace, rich, sovereign, and free;
From slavish works cease, then, and rest in the Lamb,
For Christ is thy freedom from wrath, law, and sin.

O yield not to fear, rest only in Christ;
His promise is sure: He's Jesus thy Priest;
And by one atonement thy sin has condemned,
Then by Himself sworn that He'll love to the end.

Return, then, my soul, to Jesus, thy Rest;
By faith on Him roll, and lean on His breast;
He will not deceive thee; His faithfulness prove;
He never can leave thee, till God is not love.

#639, by William Gadsby (From William Gadsby's Hymns)
