Title
O Rest in the Lord by Felix Mendelssohn, from the oratorio Elijah
Text

An Angel: O rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him,
And He shall give thee Thy heart’s desire;
O rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him,
And He shall give thee thy heart’s desire.
Commit thy way unto Him, and trust in Him;
And fret not thyself, because of evil doers;
O rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him,
Wait patiently for Him.
O rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him,
And He shall give thee Thy heart’s desire;
O rest in the Lord, O rest in the Lord,
And wait, wait patiently for Him.
