284. Joys Are Flowing like a River (Blessed Quietness)

1 Joys are flowing like a river,
since the Comforter has come;
Christ abides with us forever,
makes the trusting heart a home.

Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
what assurance in my soul.
On the stormy sea, Jesus speaks to me,
and the billows cease to roll.

2 Bringing life and health and gladness
all around, this heavenly Guest
Banished unbelief and sadness,
changed our weariness to rest. [Refrain]

3 Like the rain that falls from heaven,
like the sunlight from the sky,
So the Spirit too is given,
coming on us from on high. [Refrain]

4 See, a fruitful field is growing,
blessed fruit of righteousness;
And the streams of life are flowing
in the lonely wilderness. [Refrain]

5 What a wonderful salvation,
when we always see Christ's face,
What a perfect habitation,
what a quiet resting place! [Refrain]
