ONLY TRUST HIM
I had tasted bitter waters,
I had seen the cisterns break,
But to heal my soul’s great sadness
Christ my Lord did undertake
His great stoop from highest heaven
To the cross to bear my sin,
So that I who simply trust Him
Can know joy and peace within.
Since I put my trust in Jesus,
Life has not been all sublime,
But my Lord so kind and gentle
Firmly keeps His hand on mine;
He has led me o’er the rough ways,
vGiven me confidence to stand,
See amid this world’s contusion
Gleams of His own heavenly land.
I have drunk of living waters,
Tasted springs that never fail,
Fed on Him who does provide me
More than manna and the quail.
So my friend, just only trust Him,
You will find Him kind and true,
And prove all He’s done for others
He will surely do for you.
