11982. Resting In Jesus' Arms

1 In the arms of Jesus I sweetly rest,
And my soul reposes upon His breast;
As a tender mother her child doth hold,
I am sheltered in Jesus’ fold.

I am resting in Jesus’ arms,
And I fear not the world’s alarms;
Tho’ its storms assail me on every side,
In this refuge my soul shall hide.

2 In the arms of Jesus my cares depart,
For He shares my sorrow and cheers my heart;
All my heavy burdens He bears away,
For I take them to Him each day. [Refrain]

3 In the arms of Jesus ’twas love divine
Made this blessèd shelter of safety mine;
And I ask no sweeter abiding place
Than in Jesus’, my Lord’s embrace. [Refrain]

4 In the arms of Jesus I’ll sleep in peace
When the cares and trials of earth-life cease;
He will bear me upward on wings of love,
To those mansions prepared above. [Refrain]
