Trust and Obey
C G7 C G7 C
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
F C G7
What a glory He sheds on our way!
C G7 C
While we do His good will He abides with us still,
F C G7 C
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
C7 A Dm
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 remain when 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.
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.
