'Tis so Sweet to Trust in Jesus
4/4

G            Bm C        G
Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
                 D  A7  D
Just to take Him at His word;
G            Bm   C   G	
Just to rest upon His promise,
        C          Dsus4  D   G
Just to know, "thus saith the Lord".


Chorus:

G             D   Em  G / D   D7
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
G               D    A7      D7
How Ive proved Him oer and oer!
G             C        G
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus;
       C       Dsus4  D  G
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!


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.


Im so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus Saviour, Friend;
And to know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
