1 O the joy! To live each day
Simply trusting Jesus,
Walking in the narrow way,
Simply trusting Jesus.
Trusting where we cannot see,
Trusting him for things to be,
Keeping faith eternally,
Simply trusting Jesus.

Refrain:
Trusting, trusting,
Simply trusting Jesus,
Trusting, trusting,
Simply trusting Jesus;
Trusting where we cannot see,
Trusting him for things to be,
Keeping faith eternally,
Simply trusting Jesus.

2 Weary burdens wings will take,
Simply trusting Jesus,
Light thro’ darkness swift will break,
Simply trusting Jesus.
Trusting when the shadows fall,
Trusting Jesus Christ for all,
Surely he will hear my call,
Simply trusting Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Clinging to his blessed hand,
Simply trusting Jesus,
On the rock secure I’ll stand,
Simply trusting Jesus,
Trusting while the cross I bear,
Safely resting in his care,
Till his glory I shall share,
Simply trusting Jesus. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
