1. My Jesus, as Thou wilt!
    O may Thy will be mine;.
Into Thy hand of love
    I would my all resign
Through sorrow, or through joy,
    Conduct me as Thine own,
And help me still to say
    My Lord, Thy will be done

2. My Jesus, as Thou wilt!
    If needy here and poor,
Give me Thy people's bread,
    Their portion rich and sure;
The manna of Thy word
    Let my soul feed upon;
And if all else should fail,
    My Lord, Thy will be done.

3. My Jesus, as Thou wilt!
    Though seen through many a tear,
Let not my star of hope
    Grow dim or disappear
Since Thou on earth hast wept,
    And sorrowed oft alone,
If I must weep with Thee,
    My Lord, Thy will be done

4. My Jesus as Thou wilt!
    All shall be well for me;
Each changing future scene
    I gladly trust with Thee,
Thus to my home above
    I travel calmly on,
And sing in life or death,
    My Lord, Thy will be done
