Lyrics

Only trusting in the Lord,
And the promise of His word;
Every moment seems so sweet,
While I’m resting at His feet.

Refrain

Only trusting in the Lord,
And the promise of His word;
Every moment seems so sweet,
While I’m resting at His feet.

Only trusting in His name,
Every promise seems so plain;
I will trust Him while I can,
For He leads me by the hand.

Refrain

Only trusting all the time,
Heaven surely will be mine;
Only trusting by the way,
All will be as bright as day.

Refrain

Only trusting to the end,
Jesus then will be my friend;
Only trusting, all is love,
I have found my home above.
