1 Would you be happy in Christ your Saviour?
Keep in the way, keep in the way;
Ever abide in His love and favor,
Trust and obey, trust and obey.

Refrain:
Jesus know show to lead and guide you,
Daily manna He will provide you,
Grace to be faithful He will divide you;
Keep in the way, trust and obey.

2 Would you each day have your burdens lighter?
Keep in the way, keep in the way;
Would you each day find the pathway brighter?
Trust and obey, trust and obey. [Refrain]

3 Long you for love in its full completeness?
Keep in the way, keep in the way;
Long you to know all its pow’r and sweetness?
Trust and obey, trust and obey. [Refrain]

4 Would you at last reach the gates of heaven?
Keep in the way, keep in the way;
Follow the counsels the Lord has given,
Trust and obey, trust and obey. [Refrain]
