Sunday Blessings

We which have believed do enter into rest. - Heb. 4:3

Often Weary and Worn (my favorite hymn)
W.F. Cosner

Often weary and worn on the pathway below,
When the burden is heavy, my heart throbs with woe;
Oh, there comes a sweet whisper to quell every sigh,
"Do not faint 'neath the load, there is rest by and by."

There is rest by and by,
In that beautiful city there is rest by and by;
Where the ransomed shall live with the Saviour on high,
In the beautiful city there is rest by and by.

You will not labor long for the Master below,
When the burden is hear, your free spirit shall go
To the light of His presence in mansions on high,
Where the faithful repose; there is rest by and by.

There is rest by and by,
In that beautiful city there is rest by and by;
Where the ransomed shall live with the Saviour on high,
In the beautiful city there is rest by and by.

Then, dear Saviour, I would not in sadness repine,
Nor would here on a bed of sweet roses recline;
For a country I seek where they nevermore die,
And in Zion my home, there is rest by and by.

There is rest by and by,
In that beautiful city there is rest by and by;
When the ransomed shall live with the Saviour on high,
In the beautiful city there is rest by and by.

May you be encouraged and reminded this Lord's Day that our time here on earth is short. One day all the hardships and difficulties will pass and we will be with Jesus forever!

Sunday Blessings to you!
