1886, Daniel Towner, was leading the
during one of Moody's preaching
campaigns in Massachusetts.
During the service a young man stood up
to give a testimony. "I am not quite
sure -- but I am going to trust, and I
am going to obey."
Towner jotted down the words and sent
them to his friend, John Sammis, who was
a Presbyterian pastor. Sammis using the
words of this short testimony wrote the
hymn we know as "Trust and Obey."
As he wrote the hymn he considered the
different areas of our life what we need
to trust God about.
Verse one - our daily walk in life
Verse two - during the difficult times
Verse three - our total submission
Verse four - following God's call for
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
And with all who will 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
Can abide while 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
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.
Trust and obey, for
there's no ther way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
