Representative Text

1 O trust in the Lord, whatsoe’er the day,
Ask Him to lead wherever He may,
And doubt not a moment, His wish is right,
Trust in His word in darkness and light.

Trust Him in the darkness, trust Him in the light,
When the day is dreary, when the hours are bright;
Lean on Him in weakness, walk with Him in might,
Trust in Him forever
Darkness or light,
In darkness or light.

2 O trust Him to choose ev’ry step you take,
Trust Him for each decision you make,
The future all hidden in doubt may be,
Be not afraid, He careth for thee. [Chorus]

3 O Trust in His mercy, His tireless love,
Knowing He ever watches above,
Though sometimes a shadow your pathway shrouds,
In His good time He’ll banish the clouds. [Chorus]
