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.

French version

Il est si doux de croire en Jésus,

Et de le prendre au mot,

De se reposer simplement sous sa promesse,

Et de savoir qu'ainsi parle Le Seigneur.


Jésus, Jésus, Comme je crois en Lui,

comme je n'ai cessé de démontrer Son existence

Jésus, Jésus, précieux Jésus

Oh la grâce de croire en lui plus encore!

Oh comme il est doux de croire en Jésus,

de croire simplement en son sang purificateur,

et dans une foi simple de me plonger

sous le flot guérissant, purifiant!


Oui, il est doux de croire en Jésus,

arrêter simplement le péché et l'égocentrisme,

prendre juste simplement de Jésus

vie et repos, et joie et paix.


Je suis si heureux d'avoir appris à croire en toi,

Précieux Jésus, Sauveur, Ami;

et je sais que tu es avec moi,

Et tu seras avec moi pour l'éternité.
