1. My heart has come to the place of rest,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
The fear of death doth no more molest,
I’m leaving it all with Jesus.

Refrain
Leaving it all with Jesus,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
My peace today, as on yesterday,
Is leaving it all with Jesus.

2. I’ve brought the guilt of my weary soul,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
I’ve brought not part of it, but the whole,
I’m leaving it all with Jesus. [Refrain]

3. I’m walking safe in a path unknown,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
I find the path with His blessings strown,
I’m leaving it all with Jesus. [Refrain]

4. O wounded soul, here is heav’nly balm,
Leaving it all with Jesus;
Then change thy moan to a joyous psalm,
In leaving it all with Jesus. [Refrain]
