Reminds me of a line in an old Dutch hymn that goes something like "Take my
hand in your had and lead me, like a child." To me, this shows both the
"child-like faith" that is often called for and the trust that one has to
have in somebody to lead you where (s)he knows is good for you.

One of the best definitions I know:
One of our Nazarene preachers defined the faith of Abraham as that of
"taking God's hand and walking backwards".
