Introductory Note:

This is a favorite hymn of at least one-sixth of the team here at Renovaré (we took a poll).

We hope you’ll enjoy it as a lovely start to your weekend—and find yourself folded ever more closely into the sweet will of God.

(For an enchanting version of this hymn—set to some truly beautiful images—we commend to you this video. Blessings!)

Renovaré Team

My stub­born will at last hath yield­ed;
I would be Thine, and Thine alone,
And this the prayer my lips are bring­ing,
Lord, let in me Thy will be done.”

Sweet will of God, still fold me clos­er,
Till I am whol­ly lost in Thee;
Sweet will of God, still fold me clos­er,
Till I am whol­ly lost in Thee.

I’m tired of sin, foot­sore and weary,
The dark­some path hath drea­ry grown,
But now a light has ris’n to cheer me;
I find in Thee my Star, my Sun.

Thy pre­cious will, O con­quer­ing Sav­ior
Doth now embrace and com­pass me;
All dis­cords hushed, my peace a riv­er,
My soul a pris­oned bird set free.

Shut in with Thee, O Lord, for­ev­er,
My way­ward feet no more to roam;
What pow’r from Thee my soul can sev­er?
The cen­ter of God’s will my home.
