Nothing’s quite so precious

Nothing’s quite so precious
As Jesus in my spirit.
He takes away the care
And fills me with His peace.
He never leaves me,
E’en as the days grow weary.
His presence goes with me.
My soul delights to hide in His arms.
  I call His name, “Lord Jesus,
Help me in my weakness.”
So faithfully each day in me
He proves His life is so sufficient.
Nothing’s quite so precious
As Jesus in my spirit.
He turns my heart to Him,
To feast upon His life.
It’s nothing I do—
His mercy’s just upon me.
And God’s free gift of grace
Becomes an endless joy to me.

Knowing you have Jesus is being confident that your burdens are lightened, fears cast on him hence, blessed life assured.

"It's nothing I do..." Such a simple declaration based on Galatians 2:20; 1 Corinthians 15:10. How could my doing compare with His, so I just rest in Him and let Him do through me and with me, but not by me.

Jesus is in our mingled spirit. Hallelujah!

Dear Peter Cua,

You can search for this song on Youtube as well, with backup vocals to help you along.

May you enjoy more of Christ through these hymns.

I learned about this hymn from my sister. I like the lyrics and the tune, but I find it rather difficult to sing along. This is a wonderful site, but it would be very very much better if there would be someone singing the hymn so it would be easy for newbies like me to follow. Just a little suggestion.
