Jesus, Savior, oh, how trustfully
I lean on Thee where’er I go;
In Thy mercy Thou wilt shelter me,
From storms that beat, and winds that blow.

Refrain

Trusting, I am trusting,
Trusting, I am trusting;
Trusting, trusting, Lord, in Thee;
Ever keep Thou me.

Jesus, Savior, oh, how tenderly
Within my heart Thy words I hear;
Thro’ Thy Spirit sweetly telling me,
That I am safe, for Thou art near.

Refrain

Jesus, Savior, oh, how joyfully
I give my all to Thy control;
Clouds may gather, yet how peacefully,
The sun shines brightly in my soul.

Refrain

Jesus, Savior, Thou hast promised me
That o’er life’s billows, wild and dark,
Safely, surely Thou wilt anchor me,
And homeward bring my wave-tossed bark.

Refrain
