Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)


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.


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.


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.


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.
