Acceptance

In acceptance lieth peace.
Oh my heart be still,
Let thy restless worries cease
And accept His will.
Though this test be not thy choice,
It is His – therefore rejoice.

In His will, there cannot be
Ought to make thee sad.
If this is His choice for thee,
Take it and be glad.
Make of it some lovely thing
To the glory of thy King.

Cease from sighs and murmurings,
Sing His lovely grace,
For this thing means thy furthering
To a wealthy place.
From thy fears He’ll give release,
For, in ACCEPTANCE, there is peace.
