If you know where to get a good pho­to of New­ton (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), or a bet­ter one of John­ston,


Trust in Je­sus, trust Him ev­er,
None so strong to help is He;
Trust His love to save and keep you,
Till His lov­ing face you see.
Trust in Je­sus when the sun­shine
Makes the way all fair and bright,
Trust Him when the day is dark­est,
Trust Him in the deep­est night.

Trust the Sav­ior, trust Him fully,
He is watch­ing all the day,
Leading home His lit­tle pil­grims,
Trust in Je­sus all the way.
Love and trust Him, love and trust Him,
Follow Him, the bless­èd Guide,
Tell His love to all about you,
Till you reach the Sav­ior’s side.

Trust in Je­sus, ne­ver doubt Him,
Though you can­not un­der­stand;
He is wise and kind and ten­der,
Still ob­ey your Lord’s com­mand.
Come to Me, the Mas­ter call­eth,
Sweetest mes­sage ever heard;
Daily look to Him who loves you,
Take the Sav­ior at His word.
