My Faith Has Has Found A Resting Place Lyrics and Story

This hymn "My Faith Has Found A Resting Place" was composed by Elizabeth Edmunds Hewitt. Ms Hewitt’s pseudonym was Lidie H. Edmunds which is used in other copies of her hymns.

She was a native of Philadelphia where she was born on 28th June 1851.

Early in her life, Ms Hewitt suffered from spinal malady that incapacitated her for a long time.

It was while she was convalescing that she found her passion of writing poems for her church's primary department.  She later became a Sunday School teacher in the Presbyterian church.

This song is the result of one her poems and I know you will be blessed by it as millions have.
EE Hewitt

Below are the lyrics of this much loved hymn.

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

Refrain:
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. [Refrain]

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

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. [Refrain]
