Representative Text

1 I am not weary, tho’ long is the road
Leading to heaven, my future abode;
Onward I’m pressing, tho’ far from the goal,
Resting in Jesus, the hope of the soul.

Chorus:
Resting in Jesus I faint not nor fall,
For trusting my Saviour no dangers appall;
Gladly I follow my Lord and my King!
Trusting my Saviour, O why should I fear!

2 Gently He leadeth my footsteps aright,
Out of the darkness and into the light;
Even tho’ perils and dangers are near,
Trusting my Saviour, O why should I fear! [Chorus]

3 All of my burdens He beareth for me,
Tenderly-loving and gracious is He;
He is my comfort, my strength and my stay,
Following Jesus, O how can I stray! [Chorus]

4 When through the portals of light I have pass’d,
Safe in the mansions of glory at last,
Joyful hosannas with angels I’ll sing,
Ransomed by Jesus, my Lord and my King! [Chorus]
