HOW SWEET TO BOW AND WAIT
(Tune: O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES #46 CM)
How sweet to bow and wait before
The throne of my dear Lord;
Surrender to His providence,
And wait to hear His word.
Sickness and health, sorrow and joy,
He wisely measures out:
Faithful and true, He does me good;
His love I cannot doubt!
My Father knows just what I need
To make me trust Him more,
To draw my heart to Christ in love,
And seek His will the more.
I lay myself before Your throne,
My God, Your will be done!
Order my steps and guide my heart
To magnify Your Son.
O Holy Spirit, as I wait,
Descend upon my soul,
Inscribe upon my heart Your will,
And make my spirit whole.
