My God, My Father

My God, My Father while I stray
far from my home in life's rough way,
oh, teach me from my heart to say:
Thy will be done.

Though dark my path and sad my lot,
let me 'be still' and murmur not,
or breathe the prayer divinely taught:
Thy will be done.

But if my fainting heart be blessed
with the Holy Spirit for its guest,
my God, to Thee I leave the rest.
Thy will be done.

If Thou should call me to resign,
what most I prized never was mine.
I only yield Thee what is Thine.
Thy will be done.

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.

And when on earth I breathe no more,
The prayer oft mixed with tears before,
I'll sing upon that joyful shore:
Thy will be done!

I've started learning to play a few worship songs for my family's weekly bible studies this summer! Evidently, my mom took a video on her iphone, so check out a video of my sister and I singing this song here.
