I rest on him, the Crucified

Representative Text

1 I rest on Him, the Crucified,
Redeeming Lord of all;
Confessing all my sinfulness,
Low at his feet I fall.

Refrain:
I’m resting on the Lord,
I’m resting on the Lord,
My soul shall never, never fear;
For I’m resting on the Lord,
I’m resting on the Lord,
My King and Friend so dear.

2 I rest upon his loving arm,
He watches o’er my way;
My all sustaining hope is he,
Who leads me day by day. [Refrain]

3 I rest upon his promise sweet,
That promise dear to me,
That in his home from sin and grief
My soul shall e’er be free. [Refrain]

4 I rest in peace, confidingly
I trust me in his hand;
I know that he will lead me on
To heav’n, that promised land. [Refrain]
