My Soul Finds Rest In Jesus


My soul finds rest in Jesus,
I see His work is done ;
The Father hath declared Himself
Well pleased in His Son.

 I cast my care on Jesus,
For who so kind as He ?
No mother's heart has half the love
That Jesus bears to me.

I'll try to live like Jesus,
And do His Father's will;
Where'er he goes I'll follow him,
And He will keep me still.

I'll bring my friends to Jesus,
And bid them look and live;
I'll tell how free His mercy is;
How freely He'll forgive.

I sing the praise of Jesus,
It is a pleasant thing,
With grateful hearts to celebrate
The glories of our King.

I yield my all to Jesus,
And am supremely blest;
Yes! in the bosom of His love
Is my eternal rest.

from The Evangelist's Hymn Book, 1860

Hebrews 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he
careth for you.

Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of
unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those
that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments
of righteousness unto God.
