Not Try, but Trust

Verse 1:
Not saved are we by trying,
From self can come no aid;
‘Tis on the blood relying,
Once for our ransom paid;
‘Tis looking unto Jesus,
The holy One and just;
‘Tis His great work that saves us,
It is not Try, but Trust.

Refrain:
It is not Try, but Trust;
It is not Try, but Trust;
‘Tis His great work that saves us;
It is not try, but Trust.

Verse 2:
‘Twas vain for Israel bitten
By serpents on their way,
To look to their own doing,
That awful plague to stay;
The remedy for their healing,
When humbled in the dust,
Was of the Lord’s revealing,
It was not Try, but Trust.

Verse 3:
No deeds of ours are needed
To make Christ’s merit more;
No frames of mind, or feelings,
Can add to His great store;
‘Tis simply to receive Him,
The holy One and just,
‘Tis only to believe Him,
It is not Try, but Trust.

E.G. Taylor, D.D./Geo.C. Stebbins
