"Only Trust Him" by Methodist Episcopal Church minister John H. Stockton (1813-1877) fulfilled many of these criteria, at least for those who sang it originally. Stockton worked with Moody and Sankey in their Philadelphia meetings in 1874, writing several songs for use in the revivals. These were published in (1874) and (1875). Hymnologist Paul A. Richardson traces this song, however, to an earlier source, J. E. Knapp's (1869). Originally in five stanzas, four have been maintained in most current hymnals.
Come, every soul by sin oppressed,
there's mercy with the Lord;
and he will surely give you rest,
by trusting in his Word.
Only trust his, only trust him now.
He will save you, he will save you now.
The voices blend beautifully and the music doesn't overpower the singers. Yet there is a passion missing in most of the songs in the album, Only to Him. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers are known for their energetic presentation of new and old gospel favorites, but this time it seems as though the singers are sleep singing through the majority of the songs. This is definitely not one of The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir's better albums, and won't be very enjoyable except to die-hard fans.
