 Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

1. 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
and to take him at his word;
just to rest upon his promise,
and to know, "Thus saith the Lord."
Refrain:
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!

2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to trust his cleansing blood;
and in simple faith to plunge me
neath the healing, cleansing flood!
(Refrain)

3. 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.
(Refrain)

4. I'm so glad I learned to trust thee,
precious Jesus, Savior, friend;
and I know that thou art with me,
wilt be with me to the end.

This wonderful hymn of grace was written by a lady, Louisa Stead, who moved to the USA from England in 1871. It was written soon after she lost her husband, who died whilst saving a drowning boy. She was left to bring up her 4 year old daughter alone. They later moved to South Africa and she served out her life in service to Jesus on the mission field. Her daughter also became a missionary to Rhodesia.

Come what may... "tis so sweet to trust in Jesus."

Excellent song....

I remember hearing this as a kid growing up thinking how dumb these songs sound and now as I reflect on the heart of the verses and refrain, it is like water to a thirsty soul.

Thanks friend,
Phil
