Only trusting in my Savior,
All to Him my soul would leave;
He has suffered to redeem me,
And His Word I now believe.

Refrain

Now to Christ alone I’m clinging,
Tho’ the tempest round me blow;
Heeding not the clouds above me,
Dreading not the waves below.

Only trusting, nothing doubting,
This is all that I can do;
Every trial that befalls me
He will safely bring me thro’.

Refrain

There are breakers in the distance,
Yet no danger will I fear;
On the rock my feet are resting,
Naught of harm can reach me there.

Refrain

Only trusting, only trusting,
This is joy and life to me;
Thou wilt never leave me friendless
While I cling, O Christ, to Thee.

Refrain
