1 Resting on the faithfulness of Christ our Lord;
Resting on the fulness of His own sure word;
Resting on His wisdom, on His love and power;
Resting on His covenant from hour to hour.
2 Resting ‘neath His guiding hand for untrack’d days;
Resting ‘neath His shadow from the noontide rays;
Resting at the eventide, beneath His wing,
In the fair pavilion of our Saviour King.
3 Resting in the fortress while the foe is nigh;
Resting in the lifeboat while the waves roll high;
Resting in His chariot for the swift, glad race;
Resting, always resting, in His boundless grace.
4 Resting in the pastures, and beneath the Rock;
Resting by the waters where He leads His flock;
Resting, while we listen at His glorious feet;
Resting in His arms of love—oh, rest complete!
5 Resting and believing, let us onward press;
Resting on Himself, “the Lord our Righteousness!”
Resting and rejoicing, let His saved ones sing—
“Glory, glory, glory be to Christ our King!”
