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 favour 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 says we will go.
Never fear, only trust and obey.
