'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus

So I was going to attach the lyrics for this hymn to the end of post on a segment of scripture, but I decided not to wait because I love it so much and wanted to share it. It is indeed a sweet delicacy to trust in Jesus. What a great grace it is that we are allowed the privilege to trust in our precious Jesus, savior and friend!

'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.

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.

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.
