1 Trustingly, trustingly,
Jesus, to thee
Come I; Lord, lovingly,
Come thou to me!
Then shall I lovingly,
Then shall I joyfully
Walk here with thee,
Walk here with thee.

2 Peacefully, peacefully
Walk I with thee;
Jesus, my Lord, thou art
All, all to me;
Peace thou hast left to us,
Thy peace hast given us;
So let it be,
So let it be.

3 Happily, happily
Pass I along,
Eager to work for thee,
Earnest and strong;
Life is for service true,
Life is for battle, too,
Life is for song,
Life is for song.

Author: Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
