God's Will Be Done

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"His Will Be Done,"
We say with sighs and trembling,
Expecting trial, bitter loss and tears.
And then how doth He answer us?
With blessings,
And sweet rebuking of our faithless fears.
God's Will is peace and plenty
And the power to be,
And have the best that He can give:
A mind to serve Him, a heart to love,
And faith to die and the strength to live.
It means for us all good,
All grace, all glory;
His Kingdom coming and on Earth begun.
Why should we fear to say,
"His Will, His righteous,
His tender, loving, joyous Will be done!"?

- Annie Johnson Flint

Psalm 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God...

Matt. 6:10 Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
