No. 9 ‘Tis so Sweet to Trust in Jesus

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.

Verse 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.”

Refrain:
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.

Verse 2:
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.

Verse 3:
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.

Mrs. Louisa M.H. Stead/W.J. Kirkpatrick
