TRUST AND RESIGNATION
421
2 Though dark my path, and sad my lot,   5 Let but my fainting heart be blest
Let me be still and murmur not,                   With Thy good Spirit for its guest,
Or breathe the prayer divinely taught,           My God, to Thee I leave the rest;
" Thy will be done! "                                         " Thy will be done! "
3   What though in lonely grief I sigh For friends beloved, no longer nigh, Submissive still would I reply,
" Thy will be done! "
4  If Thou should'st call me to resign What most I prize, it ne'er was mine; I only yield Thee what is Thine;
" Thy will be done! "
6  Renew my will from day to day, Blend it with Thine, and take away All that now makes it hard to say,
" Thy will be done! "
7  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."
Charlotte Elliott, 1834
