Thy Will, O Lord, Be Done

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. When in the wondrous realms above

Our Savior had been called upon

To save our world of sin by love,

He said, “Thy will, O Lord, be done.”

2. The King of Kings left worlds of light,

Became the meek and lowly One;

In brightest day or darkest night,

He said, “Thy will, O Lord, be done.”

3. No crown of thorns, no cruel cross

Could make our great Redeemer shun.

He counted his own will but naught,

And said, “Thy will, O Lord, be done.”

4. We take the bread and cup this day

In mem’ry of the sinless One,

And pray for strength, that we may say,

As he, “Thy will, O Lord, be done.”
