Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1013. Resting in Jesus

1 I am resting in Jesus, hallelujah! I know
That the blood of atonement makes me whiter than snow;
I will trust in my Savior, and abide His control;
For He loved me so dearly that He ransomed my soul.

Refrain:
Oh, my rest is so sweet,
As I sit at Thy feet;
I am resting, dear Jesus,
In Thy favor complete.

2 I am resting in Jesus, oh, how sweet are my years!
He has banished my troubles, and removed all my tears;
I am safe in His kingdom, and a heavenly calm
Now abides in my bosom—glory be to the Lamb! [Refrain]

3 I am resting in Jesus, my Redeemer and Friend,
And the peace of His kingdom shall endure without end;
Oh, my soul is transported in His favor divine,
And there’s music, sweet music in this bosom of mine. [Refrain]

4 I am resting in Jesus, what a blessed repose!
I am living in triumph over death and all foes;
I can smile at the tempest, hallelujah to God!
I am free, and forever I will sing of the blood. [Refrain]
