My Faith Has Found a Resting Place

We who have believed enter that rest. ~ Hebrews 4:3

My Faith Has Found a Resting Place
words by Eliza Hewitt

My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.

Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him,
He’ll never cast me out.

My heart is leaning on the Word,
The living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name,
Salvation through His blood.

My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.

I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

Our hearts are in such need of a Resting Place, aren't they, Kati? There is Rest nowhere else but in Jesus. Such beautiful words.

Very encouraging especially in this busy time of the year, with the holidays coming up fast. Thank you for sharing this hymn, Kati.

Thank you also for your encouragement on my blog! I appreciate it so much!!

Maybe I'll try a project on Pinterest that you'll be able to recreate, too. :)
