Representative Text

1 Just as He wills, so let it be,
Whose hand shall mark my path for me,
Just what I need His eye can see;
Just as my Father wills.

2 Just as He wills, who knoweth why
Dark clouds sometimes must veil the sky,—
He chastens but to purify;
Just as my Father wills.

3 Just as He wills, enough for me,
The God I trust the end can see;
In weal or woe my song shall be:—
Just as my Father wills.
