Heaven a Rest

There remaineth a rest to the people of God. Heb. 4:9

Oh where shall rest be found,
Rest for the weary soul?
'Twere vain the ocean-depths to sound,
Or pierce to either pole.

Beyond this vale of tears,
There is a life above,
Unmeasured by the flight of years--
And all that life is love.
