Confiding in Thy truth alone

Confiding in Thy truth alone

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 Confiding in Thy truth alone,
Here, on the steps of Jesus' throne,
We lay the treasure Thou hast given,
To be received and rear'd for heaven.

2 Lent to us for a season, we
Lend him forever, Lord, to Thee,
Assured that it to Thee he live,
We gain in what we seem to give.

3 Large and abundant blessings shed,
Warm as these prayers, upon his head;
And on his soul the dews of grace,
Fresh as these drops upon his face.

4 Make him and keep him Thine own child,
Meek follower of the Undefiled;
Possessor here of grace and love,
Inheritor of heaven above.
