Listen to the beginner piano arrangement of Jesus, I Am Resting.

Hudson Taylor was a pioneering missionary in China. His evangelistic journeys kept him away from home for months at a time; and there were yet longer separations when Mrs. Taylor and the children were in England. “Sometimes it seems hard,” he wrote to his wife, “to be so long away from you and the children. But when I think of One who spent thirty-three years away from His home and finished them on Calvary, I feel ashamed of my selfishness.” Again and again in times of trial he would play his harmonium and sing some of the great Christian hymns. This was his favorite:

Jesus, I am resting, resting, in the joy of what Thou art;
I am finding out the greatness of Thy loving heart.”
