Hymn Week - 'Tis So Sweet

I led worship this morning and two out of the four songs were hymns - How Great Thou Art and Trust and Obey. Several people expressed gladness aftwards, "I miss the hymns." Several people didn't know them at all, but they chimed in lustily during the chorus.

Here's another good one:

'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."

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!

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.
