Hymn: Trust and Obey

Thank God, that where we fall short, the blood of Christ is there to wash clean those who have been given faith and repentance by His sovereign grace. And yet, how odious and disheartening it is to fall short, to give place to the devil for a season, to experimentally know and feel our stumblings, folly, and falls. It is truly a shame to let the foolish things of time and sense distract us from things eternal, things lovely, and things good. Yet it happens… May God give us more and more strength to truly trust Him (with a Spirit-wrought faith) and to obey Him (even His Holy law and word, all by His effectual workings). Ecclesiastes 12:13 is as clear as can be… “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man.” May God help and mercy us abundantly.

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 blest 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,
And 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.
