The Will of Thy Father


O God let thy will be done
Even in the midst of my plans
At times when I besought my wisdom and choices to lead me
Let thy will be done

In every of my adventures and exploitations
In times when troubles knock at my door
In times when famine and confusion arises at every phases of life
Let thy will be done

When I have nowhere to go
When all hope is lost
And the only door that seems to be open is shut
And my eyes are red and sparkling like flame of fire
Let thy will be done

In my going out and coming in
And at my helpless situation
In the wilderness of my stories
Oh! God let thy will be done
