James H. Rosecrans


I’ll trust the Lord with all my heart,
His promises are sure;
His grace divine, His tenderness,
Will evermore endure.


My heart I bring to Him, my king,
’Tis all that I can give;
His love divine I know is mine,
In Him alone I live.

How gracious is this heav’nly friend,
And He is ever nigh!
My hope and comfort here below,
My guide to worlds on high.


How wondrous is His matchless love,
His mercy, O how free!
The Lord of all the realms above,
He still abides with me.


Enthroned within my heart, He fills
My soul with peace and joy;
The sweet assurances He gives
No power can e’er destroy.
