Trust and Obey

I remember my departed dad's favorite hymn, 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.

Dad was far from musical. In fact, he couldn't carry a tune. But he loved his Lord. Looking back, I remember an uncomplicated man with a straightforward faith lived out by trust and obedience. So when I played the piano at the old church, and folks in the congregation were asked to select their favorite hymns to be sung, I knew what Dad's was going to be. Always. I could turn to it with confidence before he got the words out: Trust and Obey! What a cherished lesson lived out before this kid's eyes. I'm learning, Dad. Thanks!

  1. What a comforting memory of your dad, and a wonderful heritage he left for his loved ones. I was not brought up in church, but I can imagine how blessed you must have been by his faith. I pray that as parents, my husband and I will leave such a heritage for our children. : ) Melissa
