1 Would you feel your life grow sweeter ev’ry day?
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
Would you see the thorns and shadows flee away?
Trust the precious love of Jesus.

Refrain:
Trust the love of Jesus, trust it ev’ry day,
Let it be your comfort, joy and hope, and stay;
Let it overflow you, praise it all the way,
Trust the precious love of Jesus.

2 If you wish to keep your soul from doubt and sin,
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
He alone can keep you pure and sweet within,
Trust the precious love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Are you lost in darkness? Comfort do you need?
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
To the loving Savior none in vain will plead
Trust the precious love of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Do you wish to win the golden crown of life
Trust the precious love of Jesus;
Till all storms are over, till shall end the strife,
Trust the precious love of Jesus. [Refrain]
