God's Will

Source unknown

I am not sent a pilgrim here,My heart with earth to fill;But I am here God's grace to learn,And serve God's sovereign will.

He leads me on through smiles and tears,Grief follows gladness still;But let me welcome both alike,Since both work out his will.

No service in itself is small,None great, though earth it fill;But that is small that seeks its own,And great that seeks God's will.

Then hold my hand, most gracious Lord,Guide all my doings still;And let this be my life's one aim,To do, or bear thy will.
