Sweet Will of God

1
My stubborn will at last hath yielded;
I would be Thine, and Thine alone,
And this the prayer my lips are bringing,
“Lord, let in me Thy will be done.”
  Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
Till I am wholly lost in Thee;
Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
  Till I am wholly lost in Thee.
2
I’m tired of sin, footsore and weary,
The darksome path hath dreary grown,
But now a light has ris’n to cheer me;
I find in Thee my Star, my Sun.
3
Thy precious will, O conqu’ring Savior,
Doth now embrace and compass me;
All discords hushed, my peace a river,
My soul a prisoned bird set free.
4
Shut in with Thee, O Lord, forever,
My wayward feet no more to roam;
What pow’r from Thee my soul can sever?
The center of God’s will my home.

Somehow I had never heard this one until now. What a wonderful beautiful song!

I want to arrange this on piano and my guitar and record it...

For God.

When I was being born, my mom and dad were singing this version of Sweet Will of God. A nurse was nearby and came in afterwards with tears saying she's never heard such a beautiful childbirth.

I sang this song to my dad yesterday morning a couple of hours before the Lord took him back. This song will forever be etched into my soul & spirit.

"Not my will but Thine be done"'. I never heard this hymn before but our pastor, an older and faithful shepherd, referenced it in his sermon entitled, "Broken". So thankful for him and his reference to this moving hymn. Hebrews 13:7

I often listen to this song when I take the Mass Rapid Transit in Taipei and always receive much comfort.

What power from Thee my soul can sever?

The center of God's will my home.
