Ira D Sankey was the musical partner for
evangelist Dwight D Moody’s famous revival

Mr Sankey was singing for Mr. Moody during
his crusades in Massachusetts. One night a
man rose up in a testimony meeting and said
“I am going to trust, and I am going to obey”
Sankey sent that statement to a Presbyterian

understanding. In all your ways acknowledge
him, and he will make straight your paths.
