Representative Text

1 The trusting heart goes singing,
Whatever may betide,
To Jesus’ promise clinging,
Redeemer, Friend, and Guide.

Singing, singing,
The trusting heart goes singing;
Taking Jesus at His word,
Following where His call is heard,
The trusting heart goes singing, singing, singing.

2 The trusting heart is ready
To do the Master’s will,
With purpose true and steady,
His bidding to fulfill. [Refrain]

3 The trusting heart with gladness
Receives all heav’nly gifts;
In days of grief and sadness,
The song of hope it lifts. [Refrain]
