1 There is sweet contentment in my soul today,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
He, my Lord, has taken doubts and fears away,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ.

Refrain:
Trusting, sweetly trusting,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
Hallelujah! hallelujah,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ.

2 He is true and faithful and of friends the best,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
In each golden promise I securely rest,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ. [Refrain]

3 When the grief-clouds gather making dark our sky,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
Soon the clouds are rifted when He draweth nigh,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ. [Refrain]

4 I will love and trust Him till my race is run,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ;
I will trust my Saviour till bright heav’n is won,
I am trusting in the blessed Christ. [Refrain]
