Simply Trusting (Hymn)

Simply Trusting
Fanny Crosby (1877)

Simply trusting all the way,
Taking Jesus at His Word;
Simply trusting, when I pray,
Every promise of my Lord.

Refrain

Simply trusting, simply trusting,
Trusting Jesus, that is all;
To the cross of Christ I cling;
Simply trusting, that is all.

Trusting when my sky is bright,
Trusting when my heart is glad;
Trusting in the gloom of night,
When my every thought is sad.

Refrain

Trusting when ’tis well with me,
Trusting whatsoe’er befall;
Trusting Jesus’ love for me,
Simply trusting, that is all.

Refrain

“Simply trusting all the way.”  That is a wonderful summary of the entire Christian life.  We simply trust Jesus.  I love this stanza: “Trusting when my sky is bright, Trusting when my heart is glad; Trusting in the gloom of night, When my every thought is sad.”  No matter what our situation in life, we need to simply trust the Lord.  “Simply trusting, that is all.”
