My faith has found a resting place

My faith has found a resting place,
  Not in device nor creed;
I trust the Ever-living One,
  His wounds for me shall plead.
  I need no other argument,
  I need no other plea;
It is enough that Jesus died,
    And that He died for me.
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 written 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 was taught this when I was class 4 by my teacher called Mr. Odongo and I can still sing it with ease

I love this hymnal like no other. It describes the immeasurable power of God and dependability. He changes not. Not at all.

I was so disturbed about so many three days ago. Prayed simple prayer of faith. All through my sleeping time I sang this song in my spirit 💖 and has been singing it out since then. It's joyful to know that both my arguments and pleas has been taken care of by my SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!

When I woke up this morning, this song came to my mind. It is so refreshing especially the sentence "and Jesus died for me". I've been born again for over forty years and I've sang this song severally, yet these words this morning is like a clean cold water to a thirsty soul. Jesus Christ is Lord forever. Amen.
