The Secret of God's Will
-Miss Grace Wilder
I sought the secret of Thy will;
But, Lord, I did not know
Thy lowly life - Thy heavy cross -
Life's plan and purpose show.
I thought some special path and plan,
Bearing my name I'd see;
Instead I found in Jesus' life
Footprints for such as me.
To save the lost His aim, so mine,
Poor, hungry ones to feed;
Weak, sightless eyes to turn to light;
Sore, erring feet to lead.
Since Jesus' life reveals God's will,
Surely I'm in His way,
When choosing rough, dark mountain paths
To find the sheep who stray.
To be like Him, I ask to hold
My light where it is dark,
To carry bread to those passed by;
Let this, Lord, be my part.
Thus preaching Christ where yet unknown,
God's worldwide love I show;
And since for this Christ lived and died, God's will for me I know.
