Refuge of His Rest

"Judah rejoiced… for they… sought Him with their whole desire; and He was found of them: and the LORD gave them rest" (2 Chronicles 15:15).  "Arise, O LORD, into Thy rest; Thou, and the ark of Thy strength… This is My rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it" (Psalm 132:8,14).  "His children shall have a place of refuge" (Proverbs 14:26).  "If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship… and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). 

When Judah had been through a test
As silver refined in a fire,  
The Lord was their Refuge and Rest,
The Joy of their utmost desire. 

The Lord God has also made known
That there is a rest He has craved:   
His temple is found in His own
Whom He has so graciously saved! 

The refuge we find from our Savior
Is where He desires to dwell. 
Praise God!  He's extended this favor
In those whom He rescued from hell! 

Our refuge of rest is the light,
O Lord, that is shining from You. 
By grace we are cleansed in Your sight;
Our sins are removed from Your view!
