1.	'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
	and to take him at his word;
	just to rest upon his promise,
	and 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;
	and in simple faith to plunge me
	neath the healing, cleansing flood!

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.

4.	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.
