Jesus, I Trust In You

What can cleanse my guilt and pride?
Blood of Christ the Crucified.
From Your hands, Your feet, Your side.
Jesus, I trust in You.

And what can quench my thirsting soul?
Purest water, make me whole.
Let Your streams of mercy flow.
O Jesus, I trust in You.

Though the mountains fall into the sea,
Though the rivers rise I still believe,
For Your mercy stands and Your Word is true.
O Jesus, I trust in You.

And when I face that darkest night,
What will be my guiding light?
Shining rays of red and white.
Jesus, I trust in You.

O Sacred Heart, in You I find
Mercy seated for all time.
I am Yours, and You are mine.
O Jesus, I trust in You.

Though the mountains fall into the sea,
Though the rivers rise I still believe,
For Your mercy stands and Your Word is true.
O Jesus, I trust in You.

STORY BEHIND THIS SON...

Saint Faustina had a vision of Christ where the risen Lord stood with outstretched arms, showing his nail pierced hands and feet. White and red streams of light poured forth from His heart of mercy, symbolizing the blood and water which flowed from His wounds for our cleansing and salvation.

She commissioned a painting of that vision and inscribed these simple words on the bottom of that image: Jesus, I Trust In You.

Thousands of sinners have been encouraged to put their trust in Christ and His Divine Mercy as a result of the efforts of this simple, yet holy, young woman and this inspired work of art.

It is my hope and prayer that this simple song can be used by God, too, in order to draw a few more souls to Jesus Christ, who alone is our hope and salvation.

Will you put your trust in Him today? His heart of mercy extends a warm welcome to all who will turn to Him in faith.

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
