Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

Luisa M. R. Stead and William Kirkpatrick

Verse 1
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.”

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!

Verse 2
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!

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!

Verse 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.

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!

Verse 4
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend
And I know that Thou art with me
Will be with me to the end.

Chorus
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust You
How I’ve proved You o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust You more!
