It's So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

[Verse 1]

It's so sweet to trust in Jesus

Just to take Him at His word

Just to rest upon His promise

Just to know “thus saith the Lord”

 

[Verse 2]

O how sweet to trust in Jesus

Just to trust His cleansing blood

Just in simple faith to plunge me

Beneath the healing, cleansing flood

 

[Chorus]

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him

How I've proved Him over and over

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus

O for grace to trust Him more

 

[Verse 3]

Yes, it's sweet to trust in Jesus

Just from sin and self to cease

And in ceasing, simply gaining

Life and rest, and joy and peace

 

[Verse 4]

As I grow I learn to trust Him

Precious Jesus, Savior, friend

And I know that He is with me

Will be with me to the end
