Representative Text

1 How sweet to trust in Jesus,
I the hour of bitter need;
To walk in peace beside Him,
Wheresoever He may lead.

Chorus:
How sweet to trust in Jesus;
Oh, what joy it doth afford,
confiding in His goodness,
Just relying on His word.

2 How sweet to trust in Jesus,
With our ev'ry doubt and fear.
To know that in the Savior,
We have still a helper near. [Chorus]

3 How sweet to trust in Jesus,
In temptation's trying hour;
To tell Him of our weakness,
And to feel His love and pow'r. [Chorus]

4 How sweet to trust in Jesus,
Whatsoever be our care;
He never will forsake us,
In the hour of deep despair. [Chorus]
