So I found this Hymn and decided I would like to share it. I found it in my hymnal when I picked it up and said to myself, “This is one of the best gifts God has given me.

I randomly opened it up and found a “Worship Sequence.” It pointed me to ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus. I started reading it and liked it so much I gave it my own melody. I did find it online in the Cyber Hymnal which I will quote to at the end of the post.

‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus
TEXT: Louisa M. R. Snead
MUSIC: William J. Kirkpatrick

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”

Refrain

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

You can hear find the lyrics and listen to it on the Cyber Hymnal.

Notice the last line of the refrain. That is really what caught my attention. I’ve been lacking Faith in Christ lately and I believe it is because I’ve been looking at myself instead of looking to Him. I would ask for prayer that I would focus more on my Savior, Jesus, than I would on myself. Thanks all.

For His Glory,
Mark
