Bonus Hymn, ‘Trust and Obey’

Tradition has it that John Sammis was inspired to write this hymn, in 1887, by something he heard at one of Dwight L. Moody’s revival meetings. Someone raised his hand and said (I paraphrase), “I’m not sure about what some of this means, but I will trust and obey.”

If this hymn doesn’t move you, I don’t know what will.

Thank you, Erlene, for suggesting it.

  1. Thank you, Lee. I love the hymn and enjoy the old-timey pictures, too. They remind me of some that I saw in my dear grandmother’s attic trunk.
