Land of Rest 285b

Tune: Rev. Henry Smith Rees, 1850
Alto: Mrs. Anna L. (Cooper) Blackshear, 1902
Lyrics: Elizabeth King Mills
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
O land of rest, for thee I sigh,
When will the moments come,
When I shall lay my armor by,
And dwell with Christ at home?

Weary of wand'ring round and round,
This vale of sin and gloom,
I long to leave th' unhallowed ground
And dwell with Christ at home.
