Lyrics

I am trusting, simply trusting,
And I know I am not lost!
Weak am I, and great my debt is,
But my Savior paid the cost!

Refrain

Trusting Jesus, blessèd Jesus!
Trusting Him who died for me!
He beheld, with eye of pity,
Paid the debt and made me free.

While I’m trusting, He is with me,
Gently leading me along;
And I know it is my Savior,
By the peace so deep and strong!

Refrain

He has promised to be with me,
And that I shall know Him, too!
Oh, I’ll never drive Him from me;
By His grace I’ll e’er be true!

Refrain
