#159: Blessed Quietness

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Joys are flowing like a river

Since the Comforter has come;

He abides with us forever

Makes the trusting heart His home.

CHORUS

Blessed quietness, holy quietness —

What assurance in my soul!

On the stormy sea He speaks peace to me —

How the billows cease to roll.

2

Bringing life and health and gladness

All around, this heav’nly Guest

Banished unbelief and sadness,

Chang’d our weariness to rest.

CHORUS

3

Like the ran that falls from heaven,

Like the sunlight from the sky,

So the Holy Ghost is given,

Coming on us from on high.

4

See, a fruitful field is growing,

Blessed fruit of righteousness;

And the streams of life are flowing

In the lonely wilderness.

CHORUS

5

What a wonderful salvation,

Where we always see His face!

What a perfect habitation,

What a quiet resting place.

CHORUS
