Only Trust Him
This hymn was written by John H. Stockton and is sung in 4/4 time.
1. Come, every soul by sin oppressed – There’s mercy with the Lord, And He will surely give you rest By trusting in His Word.
(Refrain) Only trust Him; only trust Him. Only trust Him now. He will save you; He will save you. He will save you now.
2. For Jesus shed His precious blood, Rich blessings to bestow; Plunge now into the crimson flood That washes white as snow.
3. Yes, Jesus is the Truth, the Way, That leads you into rest; Believe in Him without delay And you are fully blest.
Ask anyone who has repented of their sins toward God and turned in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 20:21) how they now feel and you will probably get a lot of different answers. Ask the saved, sanctified child of the Most High God how he feels singing this song and he will probably tell you that he can’t sing it loud enough or with enough feeling to express the joy that comes from being in Christ.
We can argue about which comes first in the mind and heart of an individual, faith or regeneration? Or does regeneration come first then faith? What should be in the heart, mind, soul and voice of every blood purchased, redeemed child of God is joy for the forgiveness of sin and the blessing of eternal life with Christ in the presence of God (Rom. 5:1-5).
Then there should be a desire that others (sinners) would come to know God’s love and mercy that only comes through the forgiveness of sin. There is only one way to God. That way involves repentance of sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Trust that He loves you and trust that He has the power to forgive you. Only trust Him now.
Much GRACE and peace to you,
