Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.@Proverbs 3:5–6

O! how blest and how happy must be
Those who live in the love of the Lord,
And His goodness in all things can see,
And do trust in His most precious word.

Refrain

O! how sweet to trust in the Lord,
O! how sweet to trust in the Lord,
O! how sweet to trust in the Lord,
In the Savior’s holy name.

O! how blest and how happy are those
Who to goodness are ever inclined;
Who seek help from the true living God,
With all of their heart and their mind.

Refrain

O! how blessèd are they that do know
The precepts the Lord hath them giv’n,
And do keep them wherever they go;
They’re assured of a home up in Heav’n.
