1 Oh, ‘tis sweet to rest my soul on Christ’s own promise,
As I strive to follow in His steps below;
He hath said that He will never leave me lonely;
Oft I prove His word is true as I go on.

Trusting, trusting,
Trusting in the faithful sayings of my King;
Trusting, trusting,
Trusting Him for all the future yet may bring.

2 Dearer far than earthly friends I love my Saviour,
For no other giveth me such peace and rest;
When obscure the pathway grows and danger threatens,
In His word confiding naught can e’er molest. [Refrain]

3 Separated from Him I should walk in darkness,
For in Him I find my joy from day to day;
Lacking His sustaining grace my soul to strengthen
From the path of blessing I would surely stray. [Refrain]

4 He’s a tender, loving Friend who never changes,
Yesterday, today and even still the same;
Tho’ I am unworthy yet He watcheth o’er me,
I am safe while trusting in His precious name. [Refrain]
