1 In thee I trust, on thee I rest,
O Savior, dear
Redeemer blest,
No earthly friend, no brother knows,
My weariness, my wants, my woes.

Refrain:
In thee I trust,
On thee I rest,
O Savior, dear Redeemer blest,
On thee, on thee I rest.

2 Thy power, thy love, thy faithfulness,
With lip and life
I long to bless,
Thy faithfulness shall be my tower,
My sun thy love, my shield, thy power. [Refrain]

3 In darkest night, in fiercest fight,
In darkest night,
In fiercest fight,
With lip and life I long to bless
Thy power, thy love, thy faithfulness. [Refrain]
