Trust and obey

When we walk with the Lord
  In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way;
  While we do His good will,
  He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
  Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
  But to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise,
  Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
  Not a doubt or a fear,
  Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear,
  Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
  Not a grief or a loss,
  Not a frown or a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove
  The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay;
  For the favor He shows,
  And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet
  We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
  What He says we will do;
  Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.

I learned this hymn as a little child. It was dear to my heart back then, and it is still dear to my heart now. This hymn summarizes my hearts desire to trust and obey God and His Word. It is my ambition to live my life pleasing to God in response to His love and mercy as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.

I printed this off today to sing. I was going to work but felt our Lord saying 'Rest today Anthony'. It was my wife's birthday yesterday and on Saturday I had driven her to a weekend by the sea in Eastbourne so didn't rest on Sunday. My Lord is making sure I rest today on Monday and this song says it all. What a faithful, loving God we serve.
