Trust and Obey

(1st verse)
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.

John Sammis, a Presbyterian pastor, wrote this song in 1886.  He used words from a short testimony and wrote the hymn we know as "Trust and Obey."

When he wrote this hymn, he considered the different areas of our life when we need to trust God:

Verse one - our daily walk in life
Verse two - during the difficult times in life
Verse three - our total submission
Verse four - following God's call for our life
