Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend


 Daddy would have been 90 years old this week and Mother would have been 83 on December 2. When my brother and sister asked me to suggest a song for Daddy's funeral years ago, I remembered this hymn that was one of his favorites. If MawMaw and PawPaw could pass along a message to their children, grandchildren, and now their great-granchildren, I think it could be said in the words of this song.

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, 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.
