Representative Text

1 I am trusting day by day in His word;
Oh, the sweetness of His voice I have heard.
Lovingly the Master called “Come to Me,”
And my heart replied, “I’ll come, Lord, to Thee.”

I am trusting, I am trusting,
I am trusting in my Lord and my King.
I am trusting, I am trusting;
All the richness of His grace I would sing.

2 I’m rejoicing in a hope as I roam,
For I know each day I’m nearer my home.
‘Tis the hand divine that’s leading me on,
And will guide me till the shadows are gone. [Refrain]

3 Christ the fainting soul with love doth restore;
I will magnify His name and adore.
Unto Him my heart’s devotion I bring;
All secured I safely rest ‘neath His wing. [Refrain]

4 Christ the anchor of my soul still shall be,
Tho’ my barque is madly toss’d on life’s sea.
O’er the waves I hear His words of command;
E’en the tempest doth His voice understand. [Refrain]
