My Faith has Found a Resting Place
Eliza E. Hewitt, in Songs of Joy and Gladness, 1891. Hymnals often show the author as Lidie H. Edmunds, Eliza’s pseudonym.
1. My faith has found a resting place, not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One, His wounds for me shall plead.
I need no other argument, I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died, and that He died for me.
2. 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.
3. My heart is leaning on the Word, the living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name, salvation through His blood.
4. 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.
