Abide in Him.@1 John 2:28

Charles B. J. Root, in Songs of Joy and Gladness (Boston, Massachusetts: McDonald & Gill, 1885), number 121.

D. C. Wright (🔊 pdf nwc).

Abiding, oh, so wondrous sweet,
I’m resting at the Savior’s feet,
I trust in Him, I’m satisfied,
I’m resting in the Crucified.

Refrain

Abiding, abiding,
Oh! so wondrous sweet;
I’m resting, resting,
At the Savior’s feet.

He speaks, and by His word is giv’n
His peace, a rich foretaste of Heav’n;
Not as the world He peace doth give,
’Tis thro’ this hope my soul shall live.

Refrain

I live; not I; ’tis He alone
By whom the mighty work is done;
Dead to myself, alive to Him,
I count all loss His rest to gain.

Refrain

Now rest, my heart, the work is done;
I’m saved thro’ the eternal Son:
Let all my pow’rs my soul employ,
To tell the world my peace and joy.

Refrain
