I love thy will, O God

Representative Text

1 I love thy will, O God,
Thy blessed, perfect will,
In which this once rebellious heart
Lies satisfied and still.

2 I love thy will, O God!
It is my joy, my rest;
It glorifies my common task,
It makes each trial blest.

3 I love thy will, O God!
The sunshine or the rain;
Some days are bright with praise, and some
Sweet with accepted pain.

4 I love thy will, O God!
O hear my earnest plea,
That as thy will is done in heaven,
It may be done in me!
