1.  My Jesus, as thou wilt!

Oh, may thy will be mine;

Into thy hands 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!

Though seen through many a tear,

Let not my star of hope

Grow dim or disappeer;

Since thou on earth hast wept,

And sorrowed oft alone,

If I must weep with thee,

My Lord, thy will be done.

3.  My Jesus, as thou wilt!

All shall be well for me;

Each charging future scene

I gladly trust with thee;

Straight to my home above

I travel calmly on,

And sing, in life or death,

My Lord, thy will be done.
