1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
