Quiet Rest (Near to the Heart of God) – Hearty Hymns from A to Z



Written by Missouri Presbyterian clergyman Cleland Boyd McAfee (1866-1944) and set to a familiar tune known as “McAfee,” this hymn has comforted many generations of Christian believers.

There is a place of quiet rest,
near to the heart of God,
a place where sin cannot molest,
near to the heart of God.

Refrain:
O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
sent from the heart of God,
hold us, who wait before thee,
near to the heart of God.

There is a place of comfort sweet,
near to the heart of God,
a place where we our Savior meet,
near to the heart of God.

There is a place of full release,
near to the heart of God,
a place where all is joy and peace,
near to the heart of God.



Listen to Andy Griffith’s version of “Quiet Rest” (“Near to the Heart of God”). Readers may remember Griffith (1926-2012) best as the star of the vintage television programs “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Mayberry R.F.D.” (from the 1960s). But Griffith was also a popular Gospel singer.
