James R. Murray (1841–1905)


I am trust­ing, Lord, in Thee;
Though the night is cold and dark,
And the rag­ing, stor­my sea
Threatens to en­gulf my bark.


I am trust­ing, Lord in Thee,
I am trust­ing, Lord in Thee,
Trusting Thee, trust­ing Thee,
I am trust­ing all to Thee.

Long the jour­ney, rough the main,
Still the har­bor far away—
And I toil in numb­ing pain,
Through the bil­lows’ icy spray.


Though Thy pur­pos­es seem dark,
Thou art faith­ful to per­form.
And Thou bid’st me to em­bark,
And cross ov­er in the storm.


So, ob­ey­ing Thy com­mand,
I am trust­ing, Lord, in Thee.
I am wea­ry, far from land,
But sal­va­tion I shall see.
