Near to the Heart of God

I
There is a place of quiet rest,
near to the heart of God,
a place where sin cannot molest,
near to the heart of God.


O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
sent from the heart of God,
hold us, who wait before thee,
near to the heart of God.

II
There is a place of comfort sweet,
near to the heart of God,
a place where we our Savior meet,
near to the heart of God.

O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
sent from the heart of God,
hold us, who wait before thee,
near to the heart of God.

III
There is a place of full release,
near to the heart of God,
a place where all is joy and peace,
near to the heart of God.

O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
sent from the heart of God,
hold us, who wait before thee,
near to the heart of God.
