696 (S.M.) Isaac Vanmeter

My body's now at rest;

My soul has fled on high

To dwell in mansions of the blest

To all eternity.

Through sorrows I have come,

Through dangers I have passed,

But now I'm safely landed home,

And shall forever rest.

Once I was lost in sin,

With guilt and fear oppressed;

But Jesus' blood has washed me clean,

And now I am at rest.

Let kingdoms rise and fall,

Let wars the nations waste;

Let thunders rock this earthly ball,

But I shall be at rest.

The mis'ries I endured

Did but a moment last,

But Jesus hath for me secured

An everlasting rest.

My soul no more annoyed,

No more with sin oppressed,

But in the presence of its God

Shall now forever rest!
