lyrics

Whate’er my God ordains is right, holy His will abideth
I will be still whate’er He does and follow where He guideth
He is my God, though dark my road, He holds me that I shall not fall
Wherefore to Him I leave it all

Whate’er my God ordains is right, He never will deceive me
He leads me by the proper path, I know He will not leave me
I take content what He hath sent, His hand can turn my griefs away
And patiently I wait His day

Whate’er my God ordains is right, though now this cup in drinking
May bitter seem to my faint heart, I take it all unshrinking
My God is true, each morn anew, sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart
And pain and sorrow shall depart

Whate’er my God ordains is right, here shall my stand be taken
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine, yet I am not forsaken
My Father’s care is ’round me there, He holds me that I shall not fall
And so to Him I leave it all

Help my unbelief
May my faith abound
Let me seek you and know that you may be found
When this life is done
In the clearer light
I may see you with full and with endless sight
With full and with endless sight
