1 There’s a joy that there is no expressing,
Trusting in the love of Jesus!
And its ev’ry one’s, to share that blessing,
Trusting in the love of Jesus.

Refrain:
We will trust Him,
We will trust Him,
Ever trust in Jesus’ name,
Ever trust Him,
Ever trust Him,
Ever trust in Jesus’ name.

2 Oh, how many, in the past, have tasted,
Trusting in the love of Jesus;
And, to tell the gladsome news, have hasted,
Trusting in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Come, ye wanderers in desert places,
Trusting in the love of Jesus!
Oh, the joy that shall illume your faces,
Trusting in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]
