A Sunday School Standby, ‘Trust and Obey’

As you can see, I can still copy and paste videos this morning, so I’d better hustle before the computer decides it won’t do that, either.

We must have sung Trust and Obey hundreds of times in Sunday school. Tradition has it that the hymn, published in 1887, arose from an exchange between evangelist Dwight L. Moody and a man in his audience, who found the point Moody was trying to make a little too complicated for him and so remarked something to the effect of, “Well, then, I guess I’ll just have to trust and obey!”

Not a bad fall-back position at all.
