Representative Text

1 I just keep trusting my Lord as I walk along,
I just keep trusting my Lord and He gives a song;
Tho’ the storm clouds darken the sky o'er the heav'nly trail,
I just keep trusting my Lord—He will never fail!
He's a faithful friend, such a faithful friend
I can count on Him, to the very end.
Tho’ the storm clouds darken the sky o'er the heav'nly trail,
I just keep trusting my Lord—He will never fail!

2 I just keep trusting my Lord on the narrow way,
I just keep trusting my Lord as He leads each day;
Tho the road is weary at times and I'm sad and blue,
I just keep trusting my Lord— He will see me through!
He's a faithful guide, such a faithful guide,
He is always there walking by my side;
Tho the road is weary at times and I'm sad and blue,
I just keep trusting my Lord— He will see me through!
