I am trusting You, Lord Jesus” by Frances Havergal (CW446)

1. I am trusting you, Lord Jesus, Trusting only you,
Trusting you for full salvation, Free and true.

2. I am trusting you for pardon; At your feet I bow,
For your grace and tender mercy Trusting now.

3. I am trusting you for cleansing In the crimson flood,
Trusting you who made me holy By your blood.

4. I am trusting you to guide me; You alone shall lead,
Every day and hour supplying All my need.

“I will trust you in the darkness” by Rob Smith

1. I will trust you in the darkness
I will serve you in my pain
I will worship in the wilderness
And will follow to the end
For you are the suffering shepherd
And you know your sheep by name
So I will trust you in the darkness
— once again

2. I’ll believe your word of comfort
When the light of life grows dim
I will heed your voice at midnight
When the tempests rage within
I will cling to Christ my saviour
Who has borne my sorrow’s sting
And I will trust you in the darkness
— once again

O Lord Jesus Saviour, brother, friend
Come release us Lord come back again

3. I will praise your name in winter
When the skies are cold and grey
I will feed upon your promises
And will cry to you each day
I will lean upon your Spirit
And your word will I obey
Yes, I will trust you in the darkness
— once again

O Lord Jesus Saviour, brother, friend
Come release us Lord come back again

4. I will trust you in the darkness
On your faithfulness depend
As I long for your appearing
And the day that never ends
I will glory in the gospel
And your word of truth defend
Yes, I will trust you in the darkness
— once again
Yes, I will trust you in the darkness,
— O my friend
