Thy Will Be Done, The Saviour Said (Organ, 4 Verses)

Thy Will Be Done, The Saviour Said : Lyrics

Thy will be done, the Saviour said,
and bowed to earth his sacred head,
the sands of life had nearly run,
my Father, let thy will be done,
thy will, not mine, be done.

No watch his spent disciples kept,
amid the shadows deep they slept;
but silent angels waiting there,
beheld his agony of prayer –
thy will, not mine, be done.

His soul foresaw the cruel scorns,
the brutal scourge, the crown of thorns,
and, darker than Gethsemane,
the shadows of th’ accursed tree –
thy will, not mine, be done.

What though he felt in that dread hour,
the storms of human passions low’r;
nor pain, nor death, his soul would shun,
my Father, let thy will be done,
thy will, not mine, be done.

O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go (St Margaret, Organ, 4 Verses)

O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go Lyrics

This recording of O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

1. O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

2. O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

3. O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

4. O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.
