1 Trust in Jesus, trust Him ever,
None so strong to help is He;
Trust His love to save and keep you,
Till His loving face you see.
Trust in Jesus when the sunshine
Makes the way all fair and bright,
Trust Him when the day is darkest,
Trust Him in the deepest night.
2 Trust the Savior, trust Him fully,
He is watching all the day,
Leading home His little pilgrims,
Trust in Jesus all the way.
Love and trust Him, love and trust Him,
Follow Him, the blessèd Guide,
Tell His love to all about you,
Till you reach the Savior’s side.
3 Trust in Jesus, never doubt Him,
Though you cannot understand;
He is wise and kind and tender,
Still obey your Lord’s command.
Come to Me, the Master calleth,
Sweetest message ever heard;
Daily look to Him who loves you,
Take the Savior at His word.
