~Trusting Jesus

 

       “Trusting Jesus” is a hymn that is completely American in background.

       Edgar Stites, author of the words, was a direct descendant of John Howland, one of the Mayflower’s passengers.  Active in the Civil War, he was later a riverboat pilot and then a missionary to the frontier churches in South Dakota.

       The hymn poem first appeared in a newspaper and was handed to the American evangelist d. L. Moody.  In turn, Moody gave it to his soloist and song leader, Ira D. Sankey, asking him to set it to music. 

       In his book, Sankey’s Story of the Gospel Hymns, the singer says, ”I assented, on condition that he should vouch for the doctrine taught in the verses, and he said he would.

       The author Robert Louis Stevenson once said, “Every man can win through until nightfall.”  The Christian would agree, “Yes – with the consciousness that I am god’s and He is mine” 

       God has not promised strength or grace or faith for tomorrow.  He has said, “As thy days, so shall thy strength by” (Deut. 33:25).

—Billy Graham

Simply Trusting Ev’ry Day [1]

1           Simply trusting ev’ry day,

Trusting thro’ a stormy way;

Even when my faith is small,

Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Chorus  Trusting as the moments fly,

Trusting as the days go by;

Trusting Him whate’er befall,

Trusting Jesus, that is all.

2           Brightly does His Spirit shine

Into this poor hear of mine;

While He leads I cannot fall;

Trusting Jesus, that is all.

3           Singing if my way is clear,

Praying if the path be drear;

If in danger for Him call;

Trusting Jesus, that is all.

4           Trusting Him while life shall last,

Trusting Him till earth be past;

Till within the jasper wall,

Trusting Jesus, that is all.
