"Trust in Me" is a song written by Katy Perry (then Katy Hudson) and Mark Dickson for her debut gospel album, Katy Hudson. The song served as the lead single from the album. A demo version of this song is known to exist entitled "Don't Worry".[1]


On Hudson's old website, she explained the story behind the song, saying:

"This was my first try at songwriting. I was feeling a little depressed at the time, and was thinking about all the things I'd done wrong. I felt like I was oil and God was water, and I just wouldn't mix. I started writing about this and God placed a peace in my heart. I really felt He was saying, 'Don't worry child, trust in me.' I just had to open my heart to the healing process. It's funny how sometimes we think that we can be so horrible that God would turn His back to His own. I guess we will never really understand His mercy until we see His Glory."

The Katy Perry Wiki


How could I see you when I was so blind
How could I grasp you when I was far behind
How could I hear you when I was so deaf
How could I get up when I had been left

But You said, "don’t worry"
For I’ve healed the blind man
And I’ve set the captives free
And You said, "don’t worry"
For all you’ve gotta do
Is put your trust in Me

How could I be clean when I was so dirty
How could I be made whole when I was torn apart
Make me whole, make me whole
Make me whole again
