TRUST #33: HYMN - Trusting Jesus

When we put our TRUST in the Lord, it can bring us comfort as we realize that, even when we don't understand God's ways, everything we go through in life happens for a reason. It brings us peace. 

Edgar P. Stites was a hymn writer and an active member of his church in the mid to late 1800's. One of the hymns he wrote, Trusting Jesus, conveys the type of trust he had. The lyr­ics first ap­peared as a po­em in a news­pa­per. Then, the words were giv­en to Evangelist, Dwight L. Moo­dy, who then asked his song leader, Ira D. Sank­ey, to put the words to mu­sic. A beautiful hymn was the result. It is a timeless hymn that has encouraged many to keep "trusting Him whate'r befall, TRUSTING Jesus, that is all." 

Words by: Edgar P. Stites
Music by: 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.
