Lyrics

My heart has come to the place of rest,
Leaving it all with Je­sus;
The fear of death doth no more mo­lest,
I’m leav­ing it all with Je­sus.

Refrain

Leaving it all with Je­sus,
Leaving it all with Je­sus;
My peace to­day, as on yes­terday,
Is leav­ing it all with Je­sus.

I’ve brought the guilt of my wea­ry soul,
Leaving it all with Je­sus;
I’ve brought not part of it, but the whole,
I’m leav­ing it all with Je­sus.

Refrain

I’m walk­ing safe in a path un­known,
Leaving it all with Je­sus;
I find the path with His bless­ings strown,
I’m leav­ing it all with Je­sus.

Refrain

O wound­ed soul, here is heav’n­ly balm,
Leaving it all with Je­sus;
Then change thy moan to a joy­ous psalm,
In leav­ing it all with Je­sus.
