1 O my heart is thrilled with wondrous joy today!
I am resting in the Saviour’s love;
Christ, the Lord, has taken all my wins away,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love.

Refrain:
I am resting, sweetly resting,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love.

2 At the fountain opened for the soul unclean,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love;
Trusting in his grace I ventured freely in,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love. [Refrain]

3 All my doubts are vanished, all my fears are gone,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love;
When I trusted Jesus, lo! the work was done,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love. [Refrain]

4 O the bliss and rapture! O the wondrous place!
I am resting in the Saviour’s love;
I have never known so pure a joy as this,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love. [Refrain]

5 So I live rejoicing in his love each day,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love;
I am walking with him in the narrow way,
I am resting in the Saviour’s love. [Refrain]
