trust and obey

Trust and Obey is the song and message – How do we apply it?

Trust and Obey

The message we need to absorb and live out, but how do we do that? How do we apply it? How do we live out the words to the song?

The song was written in 1887 by
D.B. Towner, the first director of music at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.
 “The blood (of Christ) alone makes us safe. The Word (of God) alone makes us sure. Obedience (to God) makes us happy.” – D.L. Moody

Here are the full words to the song, which has been an inspiration to so many over the years.

trust and obey
the word faith written out

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 obey.


“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.” – Ps. 84:11-12 – Here is Ps. 84, so you can get the context.
