The Will of God

Sweeter than honey in the comb,
Sweeter than song of bird on tree,
Sweeter than cheerful fires of home,
Sweeter than eve's tranquillity—
Thy will, O Lord, to me!

Sweeter than incense of the rose,
Sweeter than smile of child at play,
Sweeter than any flower that blows,
Sweeter than dawn at birth of day—
Thy will, O Lord, to me!

Worshiping Thee, whose will is good,
I would delight to do that will,
Letting no claim of self intrude.
Humbly I pray Thee to fulfill
Thy will, O Lord, in me!
