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.

Refrain:
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]
