1. I am resting, sweetly resting
On the promises of God;
All the precious merit testing
Of the Saviour's cleansing blood.
All my tears and prayers and fasting
For my sins could not atone;
So myself on Jesus casting
Peace I found, in him alone.
For the grace of God to me!
For salvation full and free!
2. I am happy, yes, I'm happy,
Tho' I dwell in house of clay;
And I look for something better
When shall dawn the perfect day:
Then the meeting and the parting
With the friends we dearly love
Shall forevermore be ended,
In the meeting place above. [Chorus]
3. I am hoping, gladly hoping
For the coming of the Lord,
For there can be no revoking
Of his true and faithful word;
He who went away to glory
Shall return to claim his own.
And the saved shall tell the story
Of his grace before the throne. [Chorus]
