Abiding, oh, so wondrous sweet
|Abiding, oh, so wondrous sweet,
I’m resting at the Savior’s feet;
I trust in Him, I’m satisfied,
I’m resting in the Crucified.
Oh! so wondrous sweet;
I’m resting, resting
At the Savior’s feet.
|He speaks, and by His word is giv’n
His peace, a blessed gift of heav’n;
Not as the world He peace doth give,
’Tis through this hope my soul shall live.
|I live; not I; ’tis He alone
By whom the mighty work is done;
Dead to myself, alive to Him,
I count all loss His rest to gain.
|Now rest, my heart, the work is done,
I’m saved through the Eternal Son;
Let all my pow’rs my soul employ,
To tell the world my peace and joy.
Oh what a rest when we abide! So wondrous sweet!

Verse three says so much. I live; not I; tis He alone by who the mighty work is done. Just like it says in John 15, "Apart from Me you can do nothing." I struggle to remember this precious truth.

1 John 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not. We keep sin out of our lives, by abiding in HIM every moment of the day. He abides in us and we in Him.

John chapter 5 says that He is the vine and we are the branches. One thing the Lord encourages us is only to abide in Him. Abiding in Him is so wondrous thing and the sweeties thing at all. So, please take to listen this hymn it is so wonderful song. HALLELUJAH!
