MY FATHER, GRANT THE GRACE I NEED
(Tune: Must Jesus Bear The Cross Alone? #342 CM)
My Father, grant the grace I need My life’s affairs to leave
To the disposal of Your will, Peace and contentment give.
Why should I tremble at Your will, Whose love forbids my doubts?
My Father, make Your pleasure mine, And drive away my clouds.
O let me freely yield to You The thing that I most prize.
I want to trust Your grace and love, My Father, great and wise.
“Goodness and mercy follow me.” That is, I know, the truth.
Yet, in this sinful flesh, I am Prone to oppose them both!
Still, in my inmost soul, I cry, Father, Your will be done.
Do what You will with me and mine, To glorify Your Son.
