Representative Text

1 Resting my soul on Jesus,
With all its sin and care,
Beneath the shelter of His cross,
None may accuse me there.

Come unto Jesus, all ye that labor,
all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
Come unto Jesus, all ye that labor,
and He will give you rest.

2 Resting my head on Jesus,
Thro’ all the noontide heat,
Thro’ all the din and turmoil here,
So oft in life we meet. [Refrain]

3 Resting my heart on Jesus,
When bruised and sad and sore,
He binds it up so tenderly
That it may bleed no more. [Refrain]

4 Resting for aye on Jesus,
In life or death my all,
I’ll gladly rise and follow Him,
Whenever He may call. [Refrain]
