"Trust" is a song from the 2008 musical Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. It is sung by the squirrels and Jane about taking chances in life by trusting "that branch you land on."

It was also performed by Rosie O'Donnell and the squirrels for the benefit Rosie's Broadway Extravaganza.

The song was slightly rewritten for the 2009 run of the show due to Jane's subplot no longer taking her into the world of the story. Instead, the song is sung at the end of Act 1 by Emmet receiving advice from the squirrels about taking the chance of putting a hole into his mother's washtub. Jane sings a reprise of the song in Act 2 during a brief fantasy sequence where she encounters the squirrels.
