Jesus! I am resting, resting

Jesus! I am resting, resting
In the joy of what Thou art;
I am finding out the greatness
  Of Thy loving heart.
Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee,
And Thy beauty fills my soul,
For, by Thy transforming power,
  Thou hast made me whole.
  Jesus! I am resting, resting
In the joy of what Thou art;
I am finding out the greatness
    Of Thy loving heart.
Oh, how great Thy loving kindness,
Vaster, broader than the sea:
Oh, how marvelous Thy goodness,
  Lavished all on me!
Yes, I rest in Thee, Beloved,
Know what wealth of grace is Thine,
Know Thy certainty of promise,
  And have made it mine.
Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus,
I behold Thee as Thou art,
And Thy love, so pure, so changeless,
  Satisfies my heart,
Satisfies its deepest longings,
Meets, supplies its every need,
Compasseth me round with blessings,
  Thine is love indeed.
Ever lift Thy face upon me,
As I work and wait for Thee;
Resting ’neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus,
  Earth’s dark shadows flee.
Brightness of my Father’s glory,
Sunshine of my Father’s face,
Keep me ever trusting, resting,
  Fill me with Thy grace.

Out of nowhere this song came to mind this morning as I was opening God's Word resulting in spontaneous praise. But I couldn't remember the rest! So here you are and here I am! Grateful!



What lovely words. Old hymn, thrills my soul.

I love verse 3. How comforting that is, how He satisfies our heart and deepest longings…and supplies our every need! How applicable that is to me now...

We used to sing this when I was a child. I am now 80. Was led to sing it today, forget some of the words and PTL found them here:-)

It is the daily trusting and watching how Father keeps His promises that give life the 'edge' today...1 Cor 1:9

Isaiah 30:15 "For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not."

Amen also. If Jesus stepped into our busy lives today, I think He would say, "Come ye apart and rest awhile...Be still..."

Amen! Just to rest in the joy of Him is something we need to do everyday. Simply resting in Him is enjoyment.... Lord, help me to rest in You every day!
