Representative Text

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 shelter’d in Jesus’ fold.

I am resting in Jesus’ arms,
And I fear not the world’s alarms;
Tho’ its storms assail me on ev’ry 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 blessed 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]
