Lidie Edmunds 1891
My faith has found a resting place, not in device nor creed; I trust the Ever-living One, His wounds for me shall plead.
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.
My heart is leaning on the Word, the living Word of God, salvation by my Savior's name, salvation thro' His blood.
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.
I need no other argument, I need no other plea, it is enough that Jesus died, and that He died for me.
Lidie Edmunds was born Eliza E. Hewitt, in Philadelphia on June 28, 1851. Lidie Edmunds was a pen name. Eliza went to school, graduated valedictorian and became a teacher. Shortly thereafter, she had an altercation with a student, who struck her with a heavy slate resulting in a spinal injury. She was able to partially recover, but remained an invalid the rest of her life. She remained in Philadelphia and took up hymn writing and contributed articles and publications for Sunday School. Later, she became superintendent for a church and orphanage. Eliza also wrote a tribute to Fanny Crosby in 1905. She died on April 24, 1920, in Philadelphia. Some of her most well-known songs are: 'When We All Get to Heaven', 'Will There Be Any Stars In My Crown', 'More About Jesus', and 'Sunshine in My Soul'. 'My Faith Has Found a Resting Place' was written in 1891, and set to a Norwegian folk tune, "Norse Aire" by William James Kirkpatrick.
