My Faith Has Found a Resting Place is a hymn written by Eliza Edmunds Hewitt who is also known for writing well known hymns such as: When We All Get To Heaven and Sunshine In My Soul. Hewitt grew up in Philadelphia and became a school teacher for a number of years and also served on the staff at Northern Home for Friendless Children.

Though life for her had become limited she never lost her faith or sight of the bigger picture because she knew she had a resting place in Christ.
