Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus

And to take him at his word

C                     F          C

Just to rest upon his promise

   C             F            G          C   

And to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!

O for a thousand tongues to sing


My great Redeemer’s praise,

The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of His grace!



Years I’ve spent in vanity and pride

G                       C

Caring not my Lord was crucified


Knowing not it was for me He died

On Cal-va-ry


F                                 C

Mercy there was great and grace was free

Pardon there was multiplied to me

There my burdened soul found liberty

     G       C

At Cal-va-ry
