1 Jesus, my faith I now confess,
Thy presence doth my spirit bless,
Thou art my peace and righteousness;
I trust in thee alone, O Lord.

O Lord, I stand upon the rock,
Thy precious blood has washed my sins away;
With thee I walk in living light
That shineth more and more to perfect day.

2 No strength of mine I dare to claim,
Be thine the glory and the fame,
I rest on thine eternal name;
I trust in thee alone, O Lord. [Refrain]

3 When dangers thicken round my way,
And foes engage in bloody fray,
Thou, thou alone can win the day;
I trust in thee alone, O Lord. [Refrain]

4 ‘Mid friends that doubt and foes that mock,
When lightnings fall and thunders shock,
Thou art my fortress and my rock;
I trust in thee alone, O Lord. [Refrain]

5 O, soon I’ll stand on heaven’s height,
Be crowned a victor in the fight,
Thyself my everlasting light;
I trust in thee alone, O Lord. [Refrain]
