Oh, For Grace to Trust Him More

Tonight these words from Louisa M. R. Stead sum up everything. We had a weekend full of hard work and today exciting, undeserved goodness from the Lord. We're clinging to the truth of these words this week:  

  1. ’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to take Him at His Word;
    Just to rest upon His promise,
    And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”
    • Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
      How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
      Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
      Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
  2. Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to trust His cleansing blood;
    And 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 [you],
    Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
    And I know that [you are] with me,
    [Will] be with me to the end.

By week's end we hope to have some good things to share with you. Be praying...that we trust...and that He walks closely beside us.
