Description

Listen to the beginner piano arrangement of Trust and Obey.


The music for Trust and Obey was composed by D. B. Towner, the first director of music at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.

The inspiration for the hymn’s writing came in 1886 during an occasion when Towner was leading singing for D. L. Moody in Brockton, Massachusetts. In a testimony service, he heard a young man say, “I am not quite sure – but I am going to trust, and I am going to obey.” Towner jotted down the words and sent them to his friend J. H. Sammis, a Presbyterian minister, who developed the idea into a full hymn.
