1  O Lord, my God,do Thou Thy holy will:
 I will lie still.
I will not stir, lest I forsake Thine arm,
 And break the charm
Which lulls me, clinging to my Father's breast,
 In perfect rest.

2  To the still wrestlings of the lonely heart
 Doth Christ impart
The virtue of His midnight agony,
 When none was nigh,
Save God and one good angel, to assuage
 The tempest's rage.

3  "O Father, not my will, but Thine, be done,"
 So spake the Son.
Be this our charm, mellowing earth's ruder noise
 Of griefs and joys;
That we may cling for ever to Thy breast
 In perfect rest.
