Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus

1
’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.
2
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.
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.

The verse means yes, I have found over and over again that each time I trusted Jesus (rather than trust self, people or allowed fear to take control etc ) I have ALWAYS found rest, joy, solution to my problems. So I have proved by reason of experience many times over that its sweet to trust Jesus!

Hi David DeTar,

I think that line means... How I have proved Him over and over.

Please someone should correct me if I am wrong, I need to know too.

I have never understood the line How I've proved Him o'er and o'er. (Whenever I sing this song I sing How I need Him more and more.) So if anyone knows please tell me

Trusting Jesus means to me totality and submission to His will. The song heals anytime I listen to it, the melody and the words.

This hymn is our family anthem. Trusting God makes life easier. Good gospel hymn.
