                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. There is an hour of peaceful rest
        To mourning wand'rers giv'n;
        There is a joy for souls distrest,
        A balm for ev'ry wounded breast:
        'Tis found above--in heav'n.

        2. There is a home for weary souls,
        By sin and sorrow driv'n--
        When tossed on life's tempestuous shoals,
        When storms arise and ocean rolls,
        And all is drear--but heav'n.

        3. There faith lifts up the tearless eye,
        To brighter prospects giv'n,
        And views the tempest passing by,
        The evening shadows quickly fly,
        And all serene--in heav'n.

        4. There fragrant flow'rs immortal bloom,
        And joys supreme are giv'n;
        There rays divine disperse the gloom;
        Beyond the confines of the tomb
        Appears the dawn of heav'n.
