Simply Trusting

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.

Words: Ed­gar P. Stites, 1876.
Music: Ira D. Sank­ey
The lyr­ics first ap­peared as a po­em in a news­pa­per. They were giv­en to Ira Sank­ey’s part­ner Dwight Moo­dy, who asked Sank­ey to write mu­sic for them.

Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. Thanks for posting this lovely gospel song. Trusting the Lord day by day isn't always easy, but it is simple!
