The title of the book is derived from the fourth stanza of the hymn "We Rest on Thee". This hymn was famously sung by the missionaries before the men left for Waodaoni territory in September 1955. The lines read:
- We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender.
- Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
- When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
- Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.
