Just to trust in Jesus

Representative Text

1 I am trusting in Jesus’ precious blood,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour;
Thro’ its merits I’m reconciled to God,
Ransomed by His mighty pow’r.

‘Tis so sweet just to trust in Jesus,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour;
It is sweet just to trust in Jesus,
And feel His cleansing pow’r.

2 I am trusting a mighty hand to lead,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour;
In His mercy supplying ev’ry need,
Like a sweet refreshing show’r. [Refrain]

3 I am trusting, tho’ dreary shadows fall
Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour;
Tho’ the storm and the tempests may appall,
He will be my strength and tow’r. [Refrain]

4 I am trusting my all in Jesus’ blood,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour;
Sheltered safe in its healing, cleansing flood,
I am kept by mighty pow’r. [Refrain]
