Text by Elisabeth Burrowes, John Sammis and Donna Butler Douglas
Based on Proverbs 3:5-6; I Chronicles 28.9
He is the thought beyond all thoughts,
the gift, the answer to our prayers.
When we seek Him we will find a strength beyond compare.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Oh, trust in the Lord.
Serve Him with a willing mind
and with a heart of pure devotion.
Toss your doubt and fears aside,
and let Him guide your way.
Though there be dark and uncharted space
with worlds beyond our sight,
still may we trust His love and grace
and wait to see His light.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Trust in the Lord. Acknowledge Him.
He will direct your paths.
