In the arms of my dear Savior I am resting every day, And His smiles like sunbeams fall upon my face; I am standing on His promise, where I shall forever stay, And my heart is overflowing with His grace.
Refrain: I am filled with grace and glory, And in Jesus I abide; I will tell the wondrous story, Since my soul is satisfied.
Once I roamed in sinful darkness, over mountain, hill, and plain, Seeking everywhere for rest and finding none; Yes, my search for satisfaction while in sin was all in vain, But I’ve found it in God’s well beloved Son.
Long in sin I sought for pleasure, something that would satisfy, Something that would quench the thirsting of my soul; But I found that sin’s dominion, naught I needed could supply, Then I turned to Jesus and He made me whole.
I am dwelling in that kingdom, where the day is always bright, And the sparkling waters of life’s river gleam, Where the gloomy shades of darkness are dispelled by heaven’s light; And I’m ever drinking of that living stream.
