1 I am trusting in my Saviour,
And He keeps me day by day;
All my sins He hath forgiven,
All my stains hath purged away,
He hath shown His loving kindness,
Made His tender mercies known;
He doth daily grow more precious,
Since I am His and His alone.

Refrain:
I am trusting Him alone,
Trusting Him both night and day;
I’ll soon see Him on His throne,
When the mists have cleared away,
I am trusting Him alone,
Trusting Him both night and day;
I’ll soon see Him on His throne,
When the mists have cleared away.

2 All my cares and griefs I tell Him,
All my needs and all my fears,
He doth bear away my sorrows,
Kindly drieth all my tears.
He will teach and daily guide me,
While I live on earth below;
And I know He’ll walk beside me,
Thro’ death’s valley should I go. [Refrain]

3 He is dearer than the dearest
Of my friends and kindred all,
And He rests me when I’m weary,
Quickly hears me when I call.
I am hoping for His coming
In the clouds of glory bright;
I am waiting, robed and ready,
Be it morning, noon, or night. [Refrain]
