Representative Text

1 So oft we sing of trust in God
And resting on His blessed word
While souls are going down in sin;
Can God trust you some precious soul to win?

Oh, can He trust in you and me
To tell the love of Calvary
It must be told to sinners lost,
To blood-bought souls at any cost.

2 If God could trust His own today
To walk with Him the holy way;
In Satan’s throng would be but few,
For God could reach some wand’ring soul thro’ you. [Chorus]

3 The day will come to you and me,
To face a long eternity;
God’s record books will be found true,
Oh, can He put His perfect trust in you? [Chorus]

4 When face to face with truth you stand
And trifle with the Lord’s command—
To be ye holy, pure and true;
Oh, Christian, can He put His trust in you? [Chorus]
