Thy Will, O Lord, Be Done

 

Lyrics

  1. 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. 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. 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. 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.”
