In Storm In The Village, chapter 20, Miss Clare tells Dr Martin that she would like the coming winter to be her last, as she is very tired, and often sings the phrase

Art thou weary?
Rest shall be thine,
Rest shall be thine.

to herself. Dr Martin promptly recommends that she take a tonic.

The words are a translation by a British lyricist W.G. Rothery (1651-1700) from Handel's opera Rodelinda

Art thou troubled?
Music will calm thee,
Art thou weary?
Rest shall be thine,
Rest shall be thine.

Music, source of all gladness,
Heals thy sadness
At her shrine,
Music, music, ever divine.
Music, music calleth
With voice divine.

When the welcome spring is smiling,
All the earth with flow'rs beguiling,
After winter's dreary reign,
Sweetest music doth attend her,
Heav'nly harmonies doth lend her,
Chanting praises in her train,
Chanting praises in her train.

Art thou troubled?
Music will calm thee.
