1 A refuge in Jesus I’ve found,
The harbor of safety is He,
And now in His grace I abound,
I’m trusting so sweetly in Thee.

Refrain:
Trusting in Thee, sweetly in Thee,
I’m trusting, dear Saviour so sweetly in Thee,
Trusting in Thee, sweetly in Thee,
I’m trusting, dear Saviour so sweetly in Thee.

2 Again and again I repeat
The story so precious to me,
Redemption is full and complete,
While trusting so sweetly in Thee. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ sometimes the sky is o’ercast,
And dangers seem never to flee,
Yet I will abide till the last,
Still trusting dear Saviour in Thee. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ billows of sorrow may roll,
A sheltering harbor I see;
I’ve anchored in safety my soul,
I’m trusting so sweetly in Thee. [Refrain]
