The lyrics of Trust and Obey written by John Henry Sammis (1846-1919) say what I want to say with music written by Daniel Brink Towner (1850-1919). Look it up on your favorite music source and follow along with the lyrics below. 

TRUST AND OBEY (John Henry Sammis)

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 or a fear, Not a sigh or a tear,

Can abide 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 or a loss, Not a frown or 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.
