‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take him at his word;
Just to rest upon his promise;
Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord.”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him;
How I’ve proved him o’er and o’er.
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust him more.
O, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust his cleansing blood;
Just in simple faith to plunge me
‘Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
Yes, ‘tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life, and rest, and joy, and peace.
I’m so glad I learned to trust thee,
Precious Jesus, Saviour, friend;
And I know that thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
Every word of God is tried: He is a shield unto them that take refuge in him.
