The song is We Rest on Thee. The song that Jim Eliot sanf in the book gates of Spledndor.  I cannot find it in the variety of hymnals in our seminary Library.

Do you know what hymnal I can find it in?

Hi Bob,

Cyberhymnal.com has lyrics, a MIDI version, and a brief write-up on the story of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Ed McCully, Roger Yoderian, and Peter Fleming.

http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/w/e/r/wereston.htm

Here are the lyrics:

1.
We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender!
We go not forth alone against the foe;
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.

2.
Yes, in Thy Name, O Captain of salvation!
In Thy dear Name, all other names above;
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.

3.
We go in faith, our own great weakness feeling,
And needing more each day Thy grace to know:
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
“We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.”
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
“We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.”

4.
We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender!
Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.
When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.

God bless,
Steve
