685. My Jesus, As Thou Wilt!

1 My Jesus, as thou wilt!
O may thy will be mine;
into thy hand of love
I would my all resign.
Through sorrow, or through joy,
conduct me as thine own;
and help me still to say,
"My Lord, thy will be done."

2 My Jesus, as thou wilt!
If needy here and poor,
give me thy people's bread,
their portion rich and sure.
The manna of thy Word
let my soul feed upon;
and if all else should fail,
my Lord, thy will be done.

3 My Jesus, as thou wilt!
Though seen through many a tear,
let not my star of hope
grow dim or disappear.
Since thou on earth hast wept,
and sorrowed oft alone,
if I must weep with thee,
my Lord, thy will be done.

4 My Jesus, as thou wilt!
All shall be well for me;
each changing future scene
I gladly trust with thee.
Straight to my home above
I travel calmly on,
and sing, in life or death,
"My Lord, thy will be done."
