Representative Text

1 Trusting tho’ the clouds may gather heavy overhead,
Trusting tho’ we cannot see the way our feet may tread,
In the Saviour’s love abiding, as a faithful friend
We may safely trust him to the end.

Ever trusting Jesus,
Trusting him thro’ storm and sunshine,
Ever trusting Jesus,
Believing on his word divine.

2 While we rest upon his promise, peace he will bestow;
Sweeter peace while resting thus a soul may never know.
Ever trust the Saviour’s promise tho’ we cannot see—
“As thy days thy strength shall ever be.” [Refrain]

3 Trusting him thro’ ev’ry sorrow, ev’ry toil and pain;
Trusting him until at last the victor’s crown we gain.
WE will trust the word of Jesus all our journey thro’,
He is ever faithful, ever true. [Refrain]
