’Tis sweet to trust in Je­sus,
When dark temp­ta­tion’s near,
When Sa­tan waits to win us,
His gen­tle voice to hear.
To feel, tho’ hea­vy la­den,
Jesus was tempt­ed, too,
But, in His strength vic­to­ri­ous,
We may our way pur­sue.

’Tis sweet to trust in Je­sus,
Whatever may be­tide,
To know thro’ life’s dark war­fare,
He’s ev­er at our side.
Tho’ clouds may thick­ly ga­ther,
And all the hea­vens fill,
To know that close be­hind them
The sun is shin­ing still.

’Tis sweet to know that Je­sus
Supports the dy­ing head,
And o’er death’s chil­ly wa­ters,
By Him we shall be led.
That in His home of glo­ry
A man­sion is pre­pared,
By Him who died to save us,
If we’ve His suf­fer­ings shared.
