Trust and obey, there is no other way
This song may be 130 years old, but the words are still powerful for today. There is no other way - for those who want a heart after the Father's. The phrase "What He says we will do, where He sends we will go; Never fear, only trust and obey." are life changing words. Do I really mean that? Will I go wherever God sends me in full obedience? Am I REALLY going to trust and obey? It's a very scary and vulnerable position, but we can trust in God's goodness and faithfulness as well as his will for our lives.
Trust and Obey
Words: John H. Sammis, 1887.
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 blessed 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, for 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.
Lord, what you say I will do, where you send me I will go. I am placing myself in your hands, vulnerable, pliable and willing.
