HYMN CLXXIX.

8.8.6.8.8.6

James Montgomery

In Affliction.

"Father! Thy will, not mine, be done!"

So pray'd on earth Thy suffering Son;

So, in His Name I pray:

The spirit fails, the flesh is weak;

Thy help in agony I seek;

O! take this cup away.

If such be not Thy Sovereign will,

Thy wiser purpose then fulfill;

My wishes I resign,

Into Thine hands my soul commend

On Thee for life or death depend;

Thy will be done, not mine.
