L. A. Bennett

TRUST Him when thy wants are many;

Trust Him when thy friends are few;

And the time of swift temptation

Is the time to trust Him too.


Trust Him when thy soul is burdened

With the sense of all its sin;

He will speak the word of pardon,

He will make thee clean within.


Trust Him for the grace sufficient,

Ever equal to thy need;

Trust Him always for the answer,

When in His dear name you plead.


Trust Him for the grace to conquer,

He is able to subdue;

Trust Him for the power for service;

Trust Him for the blessing too.


Trust Him when dark doubts assail thee,

Trust Him when thy strength is small,

Trust Him when to simply trust Him

Seems the hardest thing of all.


Trust Him; He is ever faithful;

Trust Him; for His will is best;

Trust Him; for the heart of Jesus

Is the only place of rest.


Trust Him, then, through cloud or sunshine,

All thy cares upon Him cast;

Till the storm of life is over,

And the trusting days are past.
