Hymn Reflection #20 –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,
    And 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!
    Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
  • Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to trust His cleansing blood;
    And in simple faith to plunge me
    ’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
  • 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.

Written by Louisa M. R. Stead, 1882

This is such an inspiring hymn. Jesus, help us to trust you. Just from sin and self to cease. We just have to simply come to you and you will do the rest. And then you will give us rest and JOY and Peace. Precious Jesus, our Savior and Friend. We know that you are with us and will be with us to the end. You will be with us as we cross the valley of death. We don’t need to fear because you are with us. The glory on the other shore will be so worth it!

God’s cleansing blood will wash us clean if we by simple faith just plunge in the cleansing stream. Just rest in His promises. There is no sweeter joy than to just rest. I can’t say I follow that very well but I try and I hope I can inspire you to the same. May God bless you with Joy and Peace today.

Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
