75b. Teach me Thy gracious will

Teach me Thy gracious will,
O Jesus, Lord, I pray,
And make me ready to respond
From day to day.

76
Thou hadst no will but one,
The will Thy God imposed;
Teach me, O Lord, to rest my soul
Where Thine reposed.

Then life with all its ills
Will be no task to bear,
For what is best Thy hand will give,
And soothe my care.

I am not wise nor good,
I must not risk to choose;
I grasp the thing my heart desires;
The best, I lose.

So let Thy will be mine,
That I may quietly rest;
For, what Thy love and wisdom plan,
Must aye be best.
