Trusting Jesus

The lyrics of this hymn first appeared as a poem in a newspaper. The poem was written by Edgar Stites, who was a riverboat pilot turned Methodist preacher. The poem was handed to D. L. Moody in Chicago. Moody, on reading the poem, handed it to Ira Sankey who composed the tune.

In Sacred Songs and Solos by Ira Sankey, this hymn has the following passage of Scripture – Job 13:15 “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him..”

Lyrics: Edgar P. Stites
Music: Ira D. Sankey

Simply trusting every day,
Trusting through a stormy way;
Even when my faith is small,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Trusting as the moments fly,
Trusting as the days go by;
Trusting Him whate’er befall,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Brightly does His Spirit shine
Into this poor heart of mine;
While He leads I cannot fall;
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Singing if my way is clear,
Praying if the path be drear;
If in danger for Him call;
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Trusting Him while life shall last,
Trusting Him till earth be past;
Till within the jasper wall,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Let us learn to trust the LORD in each and every situation in life. Amen.
