Do I Trust You?

In case you don't know, I am always singing. Well, usually humming as I've learned that not everyone likes to hear my less-than-stellar singing. I've always got a song in my head.

An old one popped into my mind just now and I could remember all the words but couldn't remember the title or the author. Thank God for Google :)

So, here's the song on Youtube (I just minimize the screen and listen) and I've posted the lyrics below.

Couldn't help but think about Mike and Teresa Sesma and little Angel and Korey and Sara Kash and Paige while listening to this song. Their faith in the midst of such a trial is an amazing testimony.

Here's the lyrics:

Do I Trust You, by Twila Paris

Sometimes my little heart can't understand
What's in Your will, what's in Your plan.
So many times I'm tempted to ask You why,
But I can never forget it for long.
Lord, what You do could not be wrong.
So I believe You, even when I must cry.

Chorus:
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does the river flow?
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does the north wind blow?
You can see my heart,
You can read my mind,
And You got to know
That I would rather die
Than to lose my faith
In the One I love.
Do I trust You, Lord?
Do I trust You?

I know the answers, I've given them all.
But suddenly now, I feel so small.
Shaken down to the cavity in my soul.
I know the doctrine and theology,
But right now they don't mean much to me.
This time there's only one thing I've got to know.

Chorus:
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does the robin sing?
Do I trust You, Lord?
Does it rain in spring?
You can see my heart,
You can read my mind,
And You got to know
That I would rather die
Than to lose my faith
In the One I love.
Do I trust You, Lord?
Do I trust You?

I will trust You, Lord, when I don't know why.
I will trust You, Lord, till the day I die.
I will trust You, Lord, when I'm blind with pain!
You were God before, and You'll never change.
I will trust You.
I will trust You.
I will trust You, Lord.
I will trust You

  1. I blogged about this same topic a few months ago. It's on a separate page on my blog called "My Thoughts and Ramblings' I used a different song that was sung at Heritage a few years ago.
