1. Those who take Christ at His Word,
Give their souls into His care,
They are bound by love’s strong cord,
Willingly His yoke they share.
2. They are kept in perfect peace,
Nothing then can make them sad,
Gospel truth brings sweet release,
Jesus’ presence makes them glad.
3. Tho’ their lives a tangle seem,
To His glory He will weave
Living patterns with great sheen
While in Jesus they believe.
4. Ready for God’s Paradise,
They will walk with Him in white
Heaven’s not a heavy price,
Here and now they’re in its light.
5. Worthy is the Lamb that died,
He redeemed them with His blood.
Worthy, who in Him abide,
Reconciled by Him to God.

This is a poetical paraphrase of the following paragraph from The Desire of Ages, page 331 (Chapter 34: The Invitation):
Those who take Christ at His word, and surrender their souls to His keeping, their lives to His ordering, will find peace and quietude. Nothing of the world can make them sad when Jesus makes them glad by His presence. In perfect acquiescence there is perfect rest. The Lord says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.” Isa. 26:3. Our lives may seem a tangle; but as we commit ourselves to the wise Master Worker, He will bring out the pattern of life and character that will be to His own glory. And that character which expresses the glory–character–of Christ will be received into the Paradise of God. A renovated race shall walk with Him in white, for they are worthy.
