James H. Rosecrans (1843–1926)


I’ll trust the Lord with all my heart,
His pro­mises are sure;
His grace di­vine, His ten­der­ness,
Will ev­er­more en­dure.


My heart I bring to Him, my king,
’Tis all that I can give;
His love di­vine I know is mine,
In Him alone I live.

How gra­cious is this heav’n­ly friend,
And He is ev­er nigh!
My hope and com­fort here be­low,
My guide to worlds on high.


How won­drous is His match­less love,
His mer­cy, O how free!
The Lord of all the realms above,
He still abides with me.


Enthroned with­in my heart, He fills
My soul with peace and joy;
The sweet as­sur­ances He gives
No pow­er can e’er de­stroy.
