"If this cup may not pass away from
me except I drink it thy will 
be done" - Matt. 26:42

1.  MY God, my Father, while I stray 

Far from my home on life rough way 

Oh teach me from my heart to say 

Thy will be done.

2.  Though dark my path and sad my lot 

Let me be still and murmur not;

Oh breathe the prayer divinely taught, 

Thy will be done.

3.  What though in lonely grief 

l sigh For friends beloved no longer nigh 

Submissive still would I reply

Thy will do done.

4.  If thou shouldst call me to resign 

What most I prize, it ne’er was mine: 

I only yield Thee what isThine

Thy will be done.

5.  Let but my fainting heart be blessed 

With thy sweet Spirit for its guest, 

My God, to thee I leave the rest

Thy Will be done.

6.  Renew my will from day to day 

Blend it with Thine, and take away 

All that now makes it hard to say 

Thy will be done.

7.  Then, when on earth! breathe no more

The prayer: oft mix'd with tears before 

I'll sing upon a happier shore

Thy will be done.  Amen
