Acceptance

ACCEPTANCE

In acceptance lays our peace.
O my heart be still;

Let our restless worries cease
and accept His will.

Though this test be not our choice;
It is His—therefore rejoice.

In His plan there can’t be aught to make us sad:
If this is His choice for us, take it & be glad.

Make from it some lovely thing
To the glory of our King.

Cease from sighs & murmuring.
Sing His loving grace.

This thing means our furthering
to a wealthy place.

From our fears He’ll give release,
In acceptance lays our peace.
