O the majestic will of God

Sheet music

  1. Will of the Father, holy, pure,
    heaven must praise You evermore;
    You are but love and goodness.
    You gave the Son to death’s dark night
    to save us from our sinful plight,
    O love beyond comparing!
  2. I praise Your loving plan for me;
    You truly have done everything,
    that I might bear Your image.
    The threads of life You’ve spun for me
    are woven like a tapestry
    in patterns full of beauty.
  3. So I adore Your will, O Lord.
    Goodness alone on me You poured
    especially in sorrow.
    Through suff’ring we are made like You,
    that one day we may reign with You
    in Your eternal kingdom.
  4. God’s holy will be ever blessed!
    In it with peace and joy I rest,
    whatever it may bring me.
    Your will is ruled by love alone
    and Your heart loves me – this I know!
    Your deeds are love, love only.
