'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

by: Louisa M. R. Stead
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
***
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.
***
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Reminds me of the song "Trusting Jesus"

It's an important yet difficult thing to learn. To my mind it's much easier to handle things by myself, but whenever I give it over to Jesus life is so much sweeter.

Thanks for posting... A familiar song, yet we overlook the truth so often!
