#57: Jesus, I am Resting

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Jesus, I am resting, resting, In the joy of what Thou art;

I am finding out the greatness Of Thy loving heart.

Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee, And Thy beauty fills me soul,

For by Thy transforming power Thou hast made me whole.

CHORUS

Jesus, I am resting, resting In the joy of what Thou art;

I am finding out the greatness Of Thy loving heart.

2

Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus, I behold thee as Thou art,

And Thy love, so pure, so changeless, Satisfies my heart —

Satisfies its deepest longings, Meets supplies its ev’ry need,

Compasseth me round with blessings; This is love indeed!

CHORUS

3

Ever lift Thy face upon me As I work and wait for Thee;

Resting ‘neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus, Earth’s dark shadows flee.

Brightness of my Father’s glory, Sunshine of my Father’s face,

Keep me ever trusting, resting, Fill me with Thy grace.
