Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

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!

Refrain

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!

Refrain

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

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

Louisa M. R. Stead

  1. What an inspiring song and video, Crissy, to trust JESUS in the midst of hunger, helplessness and despair. To trust Him more by serving Him in missions (and in lyrics/music), knowing that JESUS will always be there.

  2. Thank you, Crissy! This was my favorite hymn after I accepted Jesus and started attending a Gospel church. I taped the lyrics over my desk at work. I didn’t know the story behind the hymn until now.
