O Trust thyself to Jesus

O TRUST thyself to Jesus,
When conscious of thy sin–
Of its heavy weight upon thee,
Of its mighty power within.Image result for trust Jesus
Then is the hour for pleading
His finished work for thee;
Then is the time for singing,
“His blood was shed for me.”
 
O trust thyself to Jesus,
When faith is dim and weak,
And the very One thou needest
Thou canst not rise to seek.
Then is the hour for seeing
That He hath come to thee;
Then is the time for singing,
“His touch hath healed me.”
 
O trust thyself to Jesus,
When tempted to transgress
By hasty word, or angry look.
Or thought of bitterness.
Then is the hour for claiming
Thy Lord to fight for thee;
Then is the time for singing,
“He doth deliver me.”
 
O trust thyself to Jesus,
When daily cares perplex,
And trifles seem to gain a power
Thine inner soul to vex.
Then is the hour for grasping
His hand who walked the sea;
Then is the time for singing,
“He makes it calm for me.”

O trust thyself to Jesus,
When some truth thou canst not see
For the mists of strife and error,
That veil its form from thee.
Then is the hour for looking
To Him to guide thee right;
Then is the time for singing,
“The Lord shall be my light.”
