1 Let the way be dark, let the way be light,
Still I will trust in Jesus;
For I walk by faith in his saving might,
Still I will trust in Jesus.

Refrain:
I will trust, I will trust,
Still I will trust in Jesus;
Though the skies be bright, or as dark as night,
Still I will trust in Jesus.

2 Tho’ he leads in ways that I do not know,
Still I will trust in Jesus;
He will lead me right, for he tells me so,
Still I will trust in Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Take away my friends, take away my gold,
Still I will trust in Jesus;
Let the world applaud, let the world grow cold,
Still I will trust in Jesus. [Refrain]

4 When the boatman pale comes to call me home,
Still I will trust in Jesus;
When I feel the chill of the Jordan’s foam,
Still I will trust in Jesus. [Refrain]
