Bread for the Journey


Whenever I am outside in God`s nature I see his marvellous hand in the beauty surrounding us. The following hymn touched a chord in my heart..of quiet rest, near to the heart of God.
Where are you finding that quiet rest?

Near to the Heart of God

  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.
    • Refrain:
      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.
  4. Cleland B. McAfee

  1. Betty, I haven't heard this hymn in decades, but as soon as I started reading the lyric the tune popped into my head. Thank you for this reminder.
