gives an ex­am­ple of this hymn’s use­ful­ness, out of ma­ny in­stanc­es: “I was hold­ing meet­ings in Bel­fast. At one of the af­ter-meet­ings I no­ticed a man re­main­ing be­hind when al­most all the others had gone. I spoke to him and found that he was a mer­chant in the ci­ty. He was in much dis­tress about his sins. I showed him Christ the Sav­iour, who died for sin­ners, and tried to get him to ap­prop­ri­ate that Sav­iour to him­self. I saw there was a great strug­gle go­ing on in his soul, the pow­ers for good and evil ev­i­dent­ly striv­ing for mas­ter­y. We went down on our knees and prayed. Then af­ter a while he straight­ened him­self up and gave vent to his feel­ings in this hymn, for he was a ca­pi­tal sing­er…

It was a song of vic­to­ry over Sa­tan, and a song of praise to Christ, through whom he had con­quered. From that hour he has done splen­did work for Christ among the worst of men.”

Jesus, I will trust Thee, trust Thee with my soul;
Guilty, lost, and helpless, Thou canst make me whole.
There is none in Heaven or on earth like Thee:
Thou hast died for sinners—therefore Lord for me.


In Thy love confiding I will seek Thy face,
Worship and adore Thee, for Thy wondrous grace.
Jesus, I will trust Thee, trust Thee with my soul;
Guilty, lost and helpless, Thou canst make me whole.

Jesus, I can trust Thee, trust Thy written Word,
Since Thy voice of mercy I have often heard,
When Thy Spirit teacheth, to my taste how sweet—
Only may I hearken, sitting at Thy feet.


Jesus, I do trust Thee, trust Thee without doubt;
“Whosoever cometh, Thou wilt not cast out,”
Faithful is Thy promise, precious is Thy blood—
These my soul’s salvation, Thou my Savior God!
