During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1 "It is finished!" Jesus cries,
I will trust! I will trust!
As He bows His head and dies!
I will trust! I will trust!
All my load on Him was laid;
All my debt He freely paid;
He my peace with God has made;
I will trust! I will trust!

Chorus or Refrain:
I will trust! I will trust!
And I will not be afraid!
I will trust! I will trust!
And I will not be afraid!

2 Jesus, hear my cry to Thee,
I will trust! I will trust!
Thou alone art all my plea;
I will trust! I will trust!
In Thy hands I leave my case,
Trusting fully in Thy grace;
All my hope in Thee I place;
I will trust! I will trust! [Chorus or Refrain]

3 Wherefore should I doubt or fear?
I will trust! I will trust!
Thou, my Lord art ever near:
I will trust! I will trust!
May I close to Thee abide,
Ever keeping near Thy side,
There from ev'ry storm to hide:
I will trust! I will trust! [Chorus or Refrain]

Guinness, Henry Grattan, .D.D., son of Capt. John Guinness of Dublin, was born at Mountpellier, near Dublin, in 1835. His work as an undenominational Preacher began in 1856, since which time he has visited most parts of the world in prosecuting his evangelistic labours. He has written numerous hymns and printed them privately to enclose in letters and parcels, and for general distribution. Of these the following were included in The Enlarged London Hymn Book 1873:— (1) "How beautiful the Saviour's feet" (Christ, in Glory); (2) "Thou art my joy, Lord Jesus" (The Glory of Jesus); (3) "Yes, Thou art mine, my blessed Lord" (Jesus our All). --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
