#261: Trust and Obey

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


When we walk with the Lord In the light of His Word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

While we do His good will He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.


Trust and obey – For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus But to trust and obey.


Not a shadow can rise, Not a cloud in the skies,

But His smile quickly drives it away

Not a doubt nor a fear, Not a sigh nor a tear,

Can aide while we trust and obey.



Not a burden we bear, Not a sorrow we share,

But our toil He doth richly repay;

Not a grief nor a loss, Not a frown nor a cross,

But is blest if we trust and obey.



But we never can prove The delights of His love

Until all on the altar we lay,

For the favor He shows And the joy he bestows

Are for them who will trust and obey.


Then in fellowship sweet We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;

What He says we will do, Where He sends we will go –

Never fear, only trust and obey.
