Hymns of the Week

  • Hymn 679 ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

1 ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, and to take him at his word;
just to rest upon his promise, and to know, “Thus saith the Lord.”

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him! How I’ve proved him o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust him more!

2 O how sweet to trust in Jesus, just to trust his cleansing blood;
and in simple faith to plunge me ‘neath the healing, cleansing flood! [Refrain]

3 Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus, just from sin and self to cease;
just from Jesus simply taking life and rest, and joy and peace. [Refrain]

4 I’m so glad I learned to trust thee, Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;

And I know that thou art with me, wilt be with me to the end. [Refrain]

  • Hymn 441 Jesus Shall Reign

1 Jesus shall reign where’er the sun does its successive journeys run,
his kingdom stretch from shore to shore, till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2 To him shall endless prayer be made, and praises throng to crown his head.
His name like sweet perfume shall rise with every morning sacrifice.

3 People and realms of every tongue dwell on his love with sweetest song,
and infant voices shall proclaim their early blessings on his name.

4 Blessings abound where’er he reigns: the prisoners leap to lose their chains,
the weary find eternal rest, and all who suffer want are blest.

5 Let every creature rise and bring the highest honors to our King,
angels descend with songs again, and earth repeat the loud amen.
