EMU Music have provided a lock-down recording of I Will Trust You In The Darkness a twenty-year-old (!!) song by Rob Smith.
It’s very timely, and a sweet reminder of the lyrical quality and melodic nature of Smith’s songs.

The lyrics
1
I will trust You in the darkness
I will serve You in my pain
I will worship in the wilderness
And will follow to the end
For You are the suffering shepherd
And You know Your sheep by name
So I will trust You in the darkness once again
2
I’ll believe Your word of comfort
When the light of life grows dim
I will heed Your voice at midnight
When the tempests rage within
I will cling to Christ my Saviour
Who has borne my sorrow’s sting
And I will trust You in the darkness once again
3
I will praise Your name in winter
When the skies are cold and grey
I will feed upon Your promises
And will cry to You each day
I will lean upon Your Spirit
And Your word will I obey
Yes I will trust You in the darkness come what may
4
I will trust You in the darkness
On Your faithfulness depend
As I long for Your appearing
And the day that never ends
I will glory in the gospel
And Your word of truth defend
Yes I will trust You in the darkness once again
Yes I will trust You in the darkness, O my friend
