Lyrics to Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus
‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus is a Christian hymn with music by William J. Kirkpatrick, lyrics by Louisa M. R. Stead in 1882. They appeared in Stead’s Songs of Triumph.
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.
