How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er; Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust Him more!2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to trust His cleansing blood; Just in simple faith to plunge me ’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!3. 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.4. 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.
