G                C        G                  
'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, 
                 A      D
Just to take him at his word;
G               C      G           
Just to rest up-on his promise, 
        C           D         G
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

G             D                                
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him! 
G                   A        A
How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
G             C        G             
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! 
      C        D         G
O for grace to trust him more!

Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

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.

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.

O Shepherd Divine

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine; 
    A                           D
Thy search in the night was for me.
This bleak world is cold, but warm is Thy fold; 
   A                  D 
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.
    G                      D
Thy beautiful lamp shineth bright o'er my way,
    E                   A  
Thy glorious light unto Thy per-fect day.
Thro' pastures serene, Thro' valleys of green, 
   A                  D
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine;
Thy great heart was broken for me.
Thy grace and Thy law I picture in awe;
They kissed upon Calvary.
Ah! Life that was given to ransom my soul,
Ah! Heart that was broken to make sinners whole, 
This world is but loss
In view of Thy cross,
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine;
I hear Thee say, “Follow thou Me.”
Thy message today illumines my way;
The Spirit of Prophecy.
I thrill at Thy marvellous love to Thy sheep,
The way Thou dost lead to the still waters deep,
One staff and one rod,
One fold and one God;
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

In The Garden

I come to the garden alone
          C                   G
While the dew is still on the roses
          D                  G     Em
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
    A              D
The Son of God discloses.

       G                     D
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
       C                 G
And He tells me I am His own;
               D           C
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
G              D    G
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.


I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.

Jesus Calls Us

G     D                 G      
Jesus calls us o'er the tumult
       C                     G    
Of our life's wild, restless sea;
       A                   G         
Day by day his sweet voice soundeth,
        C                  G           
Saying, "Christian, follow me!"

As of old Saint Andrew heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for Jesus’ sake.

Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world’s golden store,
From each idol that would keep us,
Saying, “Christian, love Me more!”

In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures,
“Christian, love Me more than these!”

Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
Savior may we hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.

Blessed Assurance

A         D        G        D 
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
D         A            E       A 
Oh what a foretaste of glory divine!
A         D        G           D 
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
D           G       A             D 
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

A          D      G          D      
This is my story, this is my song, 
G           D        E           A
praising my Saviour, all the day long;
A          D      G          D                  
This is my story, this is my song, 
D           G        A           D
praising my Saviour, all the day long.

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Verse 3
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide. 
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

D                     G       D 
And did those feet in ancient time 
G         D         Em        G 
walk upon England's mountains green? 
    D            A       D 
And was the Holy Lamb of God 
   A         D            E    A 
on England's pleasant pastures seen? 

    A       Em     Am   Em 
And did the countenance divine 
               G     C       G 
shine forth upon our clouded hills? 
        Em             A  D 
And was Jerusalem builded here 
      G     D    G       D 
among these dark satanic mills 

Bring me my bow of burning gold! 
Bring me my arrows of de-sire! 
Bring me my spear! O Clouds unfold! 
Bring me my chariot of fire! 

I will not cease from mental fight, 
nor shall my sword sleep in my hand, 
'til we have built Jerusalem 
in England's green and pleasant land!
