Lyrics
God, my hope and consolation,
Ever Thou my refuge be!
In Thy care I'll find protection,
Though no other light I see.
Oft on rugged road of sadness
I find comfort, joy and gladness;
Guided by Thy hand alone,
"Thine and not my will be done."

All things be to Thee committed;
All Thou doest is well done;
If for death or life I'm fitted,
Thy commands I'll never shun.
Though the burden oft be grievous,
Thou dost comfort and relieve us;
Guided by Thy hand alone,
"Thine and not my will be done."

Lead me, Lord, as Thou best knowest
How before Thee I should live;
If but Thou my footstep guidest,
Joy and blessings I receive.
If in grace with Thee I'm standing,
Dangers fade at Thy commanding;
Guided by Thy hand alone,
"Thine and not my will be done."

Though I meet with pain and sorrow,
Oft must feel how hard it be
Through afflictions here to struggle,
Yet my God shall faithful be.
Thou dost help my burden carry;
Should I comfortless then tarry?
Guided by Thy hand alone,
"Thine and not my will be done."

In Thy hands I am committed,
Father, with content repose;
Ev'ry charge shall be acquitted;
Turned to bliss shall be my woes.
When at last from heaven's portal,
I review my lifepath mortal,
I shall utter, deeply moved,
"O how truly Thou hast loved!"
