Jesus Savior O How Trustfully I Lean on Thee – Hymn Lyric

Jesus, Savior, oh, how trustfully
I lean on Thee where’er I go;
In Thy mercy Thou wilt shelter me,
From storms that beat, and winds that blow.

Trusting, I am trusting,
Trusting, I am trusting;
Trusting, trusting, Lord, in Thee;
Ever keep Thou me.

Jesus, Savior, oh, how tenderly
Within my heart Thy words I hear;
Thro’ Thy Spirit sweetly telling me,
That I am safe, for Thou art near.

Trusting, I am trusting,
Trusting, I am trusting;
Trusting, trusting, Lord, in Thee;
Ever keep Thou me.

Jesus, Savior, oh, how joyfully
I give my all to Thy control;
Clouds may gather, yet how peacefully,
The sun shines brightly in my soul.

Trusting, I am trusting,
Trusting, I am trusting;
Trusting, trusting, Lord, in Thee;
Ever keep Thou me.

Jesus, Savior, Thou hast promised me
That o’er life’s billows, wild and dark,
Safely, surely Thou wilt anchor me,
And homeward bring my wave-tossed bark.

Trusting, I am trusting,
Trusting, I am trusting;
Trusting, trusting, Lord, in Thee;
Ever keep Thou me.

   

Meaning of Jesus Savior O How Trustfully I Lean on Thee

In the quietness of your own sacred space, allow me to share with you a gentle reflection that has graced my journey—a meditation on the nature of trust and the presence of the eternal within our hearts. Trust, such a small word, yet it holds within it the vast skies of meaning and significance. As we wander along this intricate path of life, how often do we seek a hand to hold, an assurance that whispers through the storms, “You are not alone”?

There is an ancient hymn that whispers to the soul, a tender melody that speaks of a trust so profound, a leaning on the everlasting arms of Jesus, our Savior. Take a moment, my friends, to let these words of assurance wash over you. Envision yourself resting in a state of complete trust, where fear and anxiety dissipate like the morning fog under the warming sun.

“Oh, how trustfully I lean on Thee where’er I go.” These are not just words, but an invitation into the very heart of surrender. To lean is to relax into the embrace of something greater than ourselves. It requires the bravery to release control, to accept our vulnerability as humans, and to find strength in what the world sees as weakness.

Recognize with me the precious truth that in our softest moments of admitting “I do not have all the answers,” we are met with mercy—a mercy that shelters us, just as tenderly as the lullaby of the wind cradles the leaves upon its breath.

Within your own heart, can you hear that intimate whisper, “That I am safe, for Thou art near”? What if that whisper is a call to recognize that you are never truly alone, that within you exists a connection to all things, a spirit that holds you close and tells the story of a love so boundless it transcends time and space.

This love invites us to give—give not as a submission but as a celebration of our freedom. Can you imagine the liberation of entrusting your all, your dreams, hopes, and fears, to the grand tapestry of life, knowing that whatever clouds may gather, the sun within your soul never ceases to shine? That joy, dear ones, is our birthright. It is the essence of a trust so deep it overflows into the way we breathe, move, and touch the lives of others.

Consider the promise of being anchored through life’s wild and dark billows. Does it not evoke a sense of peace? There is a divine anchor, a steadfast presence that offers to guide our “wave-tossed bark” back to the shore of our true essence. We are called to embody this peace, to become the sanctuary others may seek.

As you sit with these reflections, recognize that trust is a dance, a delicate balance between accepting our humanity and embracing the divine spark within. “Trusting, I am trusting,”—let these words be your mantra, allowing trust to nourish you, to fill your cup until it overflows. May it inspire you to extend a compassionate hand to your neighbor, to look into their eyes and see the same longing for connection and safety.

In this moment of introspection, I invite you to join me in this voyage of self-discovery and acceptance, where the sacred melody of trust becomes the background score of our existence. Ever keep us, dear Source of all, as we learn to trust more deeply in the wisdom of life’s profound tapestry and in the peaceful knowing that each step we take is held and cherished within the greater embrace.

With an open heart and an open hand, I extend my spirit to yours on this shared path of discovery, where trust is both our guide and our destination.
