Peace in believing.
JESUS, to thee I now can ﬂy,
On whom my help is laid:
Oppress’d by sins, I lift mine eye,
And see the shadows fade.
2 Believing on my Lord, I ﬁnd
A sure and present aid:
On thee alone my constant mind
Be every moment stay’d.
3 Whate’er in me seems wise, or good,
Or strong, I here disclaim:
I wash my garments in the blood
Of the atoning Lamb.
4 Jesus, my strength, my life, my rest,—
On thee will I depend,
Till summon’d to the marriage-feast,
When faith in sight shall end.
