424. My God, My Father, Make Me Strong

1 My God, my Father, make me strong,
When tasks of life seem hard and long,
To greet them with this triumph song:
Thy will be done.

2 Draw from my timid eyes the veil,
To show, where earthly forces fail,
Thy pow'r and love must still prevail--
Thy will be done.

3 With confident and humble mind,
Freedom in service I would find,
Praying thro' every toil assigned:
Thy will be done.

4 Things deemed impossible I dare,
Thine is the call and Thine the care;
Thy wisdom shall the way prepare--
Thy will be done.

5 All power is here and round me now;
Faithful I stand in rule and vow,
While ’tis not I, but ever Thou:
Thy will be done.

6 Heaven’s music chimes the glad days in;
Hope soars beyond death, pain, and sin;
Faith shouts in triumph, Love must win--
Thy will be done!
