          'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
          And to take Him at His Word;
          Just to rest upon His promise,
          And to know, "Thus says the Lord!"

            Chorus
            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;
          And in simple faith to plunge me
          'Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

            Chorus
            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!

          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.

            Chorus
            How I've proved Him o'er and o'er
            Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
            O for grace to trust Him more!

          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.

            Chorus
            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!
