"My Faith Has Found a Resting Place"
heard this hymn sung at a funeral service -- no accompaniment, no harmony,
just the simplicity of a solo voice. I was moved to tears.
My faith has found a resting place, not in device nor creed;
I trust the ever-living One, his wounds for me shall plead.
I need no other argument, I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died, and that he died for me.
--- Lidie H. Edmunds, c. 1891
[It seems we are tempted to put our faith in a host of things other than work
of Christ on the cross. Some have even placed faith in faith itself, or in a
search for fulfillment or even in a worship style or philosophy. Lord, save
us from cheap substitutes!]
