THY WILL MY GOD BE DONE




My God, my Father, while I stray
Far from my home on life's rough way
Oh, teach me from my heart to say,
Thy will, my God, be done!


Though dark my path and sad my lot,
Let me be still and murmur not
But breathe the prayer divinely taught,
Thy will, my God, be done!


What though in lonely grief I sigh
For friends beloved, no longer nigh,
Submissive still would I reply
Thy will, my God, be done!


If Thou shouldst call me to resign
What most I prize, it ne'er was mine;
I only yield Thee what is Thine
Thy will, my God, be done!


Should pining sickness waste away
My life in premature decay,
In life or death teach me to say,
Thy will, my God, be done!


Let but my fainting heart be blest
With Thy sweet Spirit for its Guest;
My God, to Thee I leave the rest
Thy will, my God, be done!


Renew my will from day to day;
Blend it with Thine and take away
Whate’er now makes it hard to say,
Thy will, my God, be done!


Then, when on earth I breathe no more,
The prayer, oft mixed with tears before,
I'll sing upon a happier shore,
Thy will, my God, be done!
