Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

My God and Father while I stray

My God and Father! while I stray
Far from my home in life�s rough way,
Oh! teach me from my heart to say,
�Thy will be done!�

Though dark my path, and sad my lot,
Let me �be still,� and murmur not,
Or breathe the prayer divinely taught,
�Thy will be done!�

What though in lonely grief I sigh,
For friends beloved, no longer nigh,
Submissive still would I reply,
�Thy will be done!�

If Thou shouldst call me to resign
What most I prize, it ne�er was mine;
I only yield Thee what was Thine;
�Thy will be done!�

Should pining sickness waste away,
My life in premature decay,
My Father! still I strive to say,
�Thy will be done!�

If but my fainting heart be blest
With Thy sweet Spirit for its guest,
My God! to Thee I leave the rest--
�Thy will be done!�

Renew my will from day to day,
Blend it with Thine, and take away
All now that makes it hard to say,
�Thy will be done!�

Then when on earth I breathe no more
The prayer oft mixed with tears before,
I�ll sing upon a happier shore,
�Thy will be done!�
