"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 2015 reunion concert due to the removal of Jane's subplot, with Emmet taking her role as the person taking a chance, in this case putting a hole in Ma's washtub.
