Near to the Heart of God


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 Redeeme
r,
sent from the heart of God,
hold us who wait before thee
near to the heart of God.

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 Go
d.


There is place 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.

~Cleland B. McAfee
