1. Are you seeking heavenly, peaceful rest?
Look only to Jesus, dear one;
It is there, and only there, it is found,
Outside of His kingdom there’s none!

Refrain
No peaceful rest, outside of the kingdom of God!
None for thy breast, outside of the kingdom of God!

2. Go ye into it, and this glory claim—
Make now for this bounty thy run—
Haste away, it there to obtain, for sure—
Outside of His kingdom there’s none! [Refrain]

3. There, this peaceful rest is awaiting thee—
Sad soul, wilt thou let it be won?
Seek thou, it, thro’ Jesus, who says, Come in,
Outside of His kingdom there’s none! [Refrain]
