Saying “Yes,” to God

May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
(Matthew 6:10; NLT).

1. Mary, you answered, “Yes,” to God;
Help us to do the same.

2. Spirit, you echoed her, “Yes,” to God;
Help us to praise his name.

3. Jesus, you cried out, “Yes,” to God;
Help us to do his will.

4. Then we’ll say, “Yes,” to all God sends,
Knowing he loves us still.
