Near to the Heart of God


017And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place and rest a while . . . (Mark 6:31).

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.

From Near to the Heart of God by Cleland B. McAfee, 1903.
