699. 'Tis so Sweet to Trust in Jesus

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."

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him;
How I've prov'd 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;
Just 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 learn'd to trust thee,
Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend;
And I know that thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end. [Refrain}
