I do not believe I have ever seen Verse 2 before.
Today is my sister’s birthday. I have had the pleasure of her company for 50 years now and will have it through eternity. This is the trust we share 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 prov’d Him o’er and o’er,
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more.
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.
