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
An help me still to say, My lord thy will be done.
2.My Jesus,as thou wilt! Though seem through many a tear,
Let not my star of hope Grow dim or disappear;
Since thou on earth has wept, And sorrowed oft alone,
If I must weep with thee, My lord thy will be done.
3.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 ! travel calmly on,
And sing in life or death, My Lord, thy will be done. Amen.
