There Will Be Rest For My Weary Heart


There will be rest for my weary heart
When I have left this old valley of sin;
Then will be healed each bitt’rest smart
When I have left this old valley of sin.

Refrain:
Joyful the thought of the morning to be;
Joyful the thought of sweet comfort to me;
Joyful, how joyful my Savior to see
After this valley of sin.

No more my lips will give voice to wrong,
When I have left this old valley of sin;
No more of gloom, but of cheerful song,
When I have left this old valley of sin. [Refrain]

There will be work for these willing hands
When I have left this old valley of sin;
Still will I heed my dear Lord’s commands
When I have left this old valley of sin. [Refrain]

I will be done with each trying care,
When I have left this old valley of sin;
No more temptation I’ll have to bear,
When I have left this old valley of sin. [Refrain]
