Representative Text

1 I am trusting in my Savior,
With a calm and steady light;
Hope is shining on my pathway,
Making all things fair and bright.

I am trusting, trusting, trusting,
I am trusting day by day;
I am trusting in my Savior,
To go with me all the way.

2 I am trusting in my Savior,
Oh, how sad my life would be,
But for Thy dear presence, Savior,
And to know I’m led by Thee. [Refrain]

3 I am trusting in my Savior,
Faith exultant mounts above
This dark world and all its passions
To the realms of endless love. [Refrain]

4 Oh, how sweet to trust my Savior,
Knowing that He is a friend
Who will cheer me thro’ life’s journey,
And be with me to the end. [Refrain]
