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;
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.

It's my favourite song especially when you are in fasting.

This hymn carries me when I'm in a battle, because I love the verse that says: Just to know Thus saith the Lord. His Holy word says it all. Trust, and He WILL bring it to pass. I never thought at 53 years old that I could fall in love again, but I have, with Jesus Christ, because I know how much He loves me. I'm SO thankful that I have a personal relationship with the Lord. Oh! How He loves us!!
