With every fearful breath, Lord God,
I turn to you again, again,
Beseeching you to help me face
This cup of suffering and pain.
Then, Lord, you take me in your arms,
And show me Christ, your Son, your Son,
Till I share his acceptance, Lord,
And pray, Your will be done.

Your will be done (Matthew 6:10; NLT).
