Love, thy weary work is o'er!
Earth no more thy place shall keep,
Calm and dreamless is thy sleep,
Rest hath come!
Gentle visions wander by,
Memories that never die.
Rest hath come!

Murmurs of the summer eve,
Whispers of an ended life,
Peace that cometh after strife,
Rest hath come!
Bark that hath been tempest-tossed,
Safe;y o'er the ocean crossed,
Rest hath come!

Faded is the twilight fair,
Clouds have veiled the Autumn sky,
Dead the leaves and flowers lie.
Rest hath come!
Tender words are hushed and low,
Hearts no other love may know.
Rest hath come!
