Whate'er My God Ordains Is Right
Whate'er My God Ordains Is Right - Matt Merker
00:00 / 00:00

Whate’er my God ordains is right, 

His holy 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;

And so to Him I leave it all,

And so 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 has sent; 

His hand can turn my griefs away; 

And patiently I wait His day,

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,

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,

And so to Him I leave it all.
