O the majestic will of God
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
From My Father, I Trust You by M. Basilea Schlink
