1 Blessed is he that is trusting the Lord,
For the help that he daily needs;
He shall inherit the promised reward,
If he follows where Jesus leads.

Refrain:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,
And in all thy ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct thy paths;
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,
And in all thy ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct thy paths.

2 Blessed is he that is trusting the Lord,
Who doth follow the heavenly way;—
Keeping with patience and hope the path.
All His steps shall be guarded each day. [Refrain]

3 Blessed is he whom the Father will aid,
And the Saviour will e’er befriend;
He shall not fear, and shall not be dismayed,
For the Lord will his soul defend. [Refrain]

4 Blessed is he who will keep in the way
That will upward and onward lead;
Walking by faith in His love ev’ry day,
Who supplieth his daily need. [Refrain]
