My Faith has Found a Resting Place

The lyrics below are from a hymn titled, My Faith has Found a Resting Place, composed by Elizabeth E. Hewitt in the late1800s. She knew something of eternal security and the peace that comes from trusting in Jesus.

She was born in Philadelphia in 1851. She became a teacher, but a spinal injury forced her to be bed ridden when she began to write poetry. Although her condition eventually improved, this one was set to music and became a beautiful praise song.

The lyrics:

My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device nor creed;
I trust the Ever-living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.

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.

I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

My heart is leaning on the Word,
The written Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s name,
Salvation through His blood.

I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died, And that He died for me.

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. [Refrain]

Watch it on Bob’s praise and worship video

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17).

“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:40).
