442. 'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

1 'Tis 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."

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!
How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust him more!

2 O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to trust his cleansing blood,
just in simple faith to plunge me
'neath the healing, cleansing flood! [Refrain]

3 Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
just from sin and self to cease,
just from Jesus simply taking
life and rest, and joy and peace. [Refrain]

4 I'm so glad I learned to trust you,
precious Jesus, Savior, Friend,
and I know that you are with me,
will be with me to the end. [Refrain]
