The United Methodist Hymnal


Trust and Obey

1	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.

2	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. [Refrain]

3	But we never can prove 
	the delights of his love 
	until all on the altar we lay; 
	for the favor he shows, 
	for the joy he bestows, 
	are for them who will trust and obey. [Refrain]

4	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. [Refrain]
