Lyrics

Verse 1
Joys are flowing, like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart his home.

(Chorus)
Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
What assurance in my soul,
On the stormy sea, speaking peace to me,
How the billows cease to roll.

Verse 2
Bringing life, and health, and gladness
All around, this glorious Guest,
Banished unbelief and sadness,
Chang’d our weariness to rest.

Verse 3
Like the rain that falls from heaven,
Like the sunlight from the sky,
So the Holy Ghost is given,
Coming on us from on high.

Verse 4
See, a fruitful field is growing,
Blessed fruits of righteousness;
And the streams of life are flowing,
In the lonely wilderness.

Verse 5
What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see his face;
What a peaceful habitation,
What a quiet resting place.
