Herr, wie du willt, so schicks mit mir.

182

Lord, as thou wilt, be it with me,

No other wish I cherish,

I, living, dying, seek but thee,

O Lord, let me not perish;

Let but thy grace ne’er from me part,

Else as thou wilt, grant patient heart,

Thy will the best is ever.

2. Grant honor, truth, and self-control,

And love thy Word to ponder,

From errors false preserve my soul;

And grant, both here and yonder,

What will but tend to blessed days,

Keep far all wrong and crooked ways

From all my life and doings.

3. When once, according to thy will,

I pass the bourne of sadness,

Then let thy grace my bosom fill,

That I may go with gladness;

My body, soul, commend I thee,

O Lord, a blessed end grant me

Through Jesus Christ, yea, Amen.
