Lyrics

O my heart is thrilled with won­drous joy today,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love;
Christ the Lord has tak­en all my sins away,
I am resting in the Sav­ior’s love.

Refrain

I am rest­ing, sweet­ly rest­ing,
I am resting in the Sav­ior’s love,
I am rest­ing, sweet­ly rest­ing,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love,

At the foun­tain op­ened for the soul un­clean,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love;
Trusting in His grace, I free­ly ven­tured in,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love.

Refrain

All my doubts are van­ished, all my foes are gone,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love;
When I trust­ed Je­sus, lo! the work was done,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love.

Refrain

So I live re­joic­ing in His love to­day,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love;
I am walk­ing with Him in the nar­row way,
I am rest­ing in the Sav­ior’s love.

Refrain
