Trust is a big issue for many former Jehovah’s Witnesses. After investing a lot of trust in the organization and having that trust violated, most of us are more careful about trusting anyone or anything. The poem below shows in whom we can trust and why.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM
Inspired by a prayer spontaneously
offered by the late Dr. S.M. Lockridge

He is unparalleled and unprecedented.
He is the centerpiece of civilization.
He is the superlative of all excellence.
He is the sum of human greatness.
He is the source of divine grace.

His name is the only one able to save, and His blood is the only power able to cleanse.
His ear is open to the sinner’s call.
His hand is quick to lift the fallen soul.
He’s the eternal lover of us all – every one,
And you can trust Him.

He supplies mercy for the struggling soul.
He sustains the tempted and the tried.
He sympathizes with the wounded and the broken.
He strengthens the weak and the weary.

He guards and He guides the wanderer.
He heals the sick and cleanses the leper.
He delivers the captive and defends the helpless,
and He binds up the broken-hearted
He’s for you…and you can trust Him.


Jesus is the key to all knowledge.
He’s the wellspring of wisdom.
He’s the doorway of deliverance and He’s the pathway of peace.
He’s the roadway of righteousness.
He’s the highway of holiness.
He’s the gateway to glory,
And yes – you can trust Him.

Jesus IS enough…He’s the all sufficient KING…
He’s the King of the Jews.
He’s the King of Israel.
He’s the King of Righteousness and He’s the King of the Ages.
He’s the King of Heaven.
He’s the King of Glory.
He’s the King of kings and
He’s the Lord of lords.
And “yes” again, you can trust Him.

And rejoice in this, my friend…He is a Sovereign King.
There is no gauge to measure His limitless love.
There is no barrier to block His blessings outpoured.
He is enduringly strong and He is entirely supreme.
He is eternally steadfast.
He is immortally faithful.
He is imperially merciful.
He is Jesus – God’s Son – and you can trust Him.

I wish I could more accurately describe Him to you; but
He’s indescribable.
He’s incomprehensible.
He’s invincible.
He’s irresistible.

You can’t outlive Him and you can’t live without Him.
The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found they couldn’t stop Him.
Pilate couldn’t fault Him.
Herod couldn’t kill Him.
Death couldn’t conquer Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him!


My friends…

He’s the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last.
He’s the God of the future and the God of the past.
And we rise to speak His Name again and again… Jesus…Jesus
He is Jesus…He is for us…and WE CAN TRUST HIM!

  1. Thank you for posting this. Half my family are Jehovah’s witnesses. My Dad left and I didn’t meet most of his family until recently. Though I was not raised a witness I have struggled with trust and building a relationship with God. I have been meeting some very accepting Christians recently who have been helping me understand the teachings of the bible. It is slow to open to it and this poem helps a bit. Thank you for what you share.

  2. Thank’s for the poem
