The LORD gives, and the LORD takes away. Blessed be the name of the LORD (Job 1:21; CSB).
Whatever You take, I’ll offer thanks;
Whatever You send, accept.
Wherever I am, I’ll try to pray;
And when I hurt others, confess.
However I am, I’ll try to serve;
However I feel, rejoice.
Whoever I meet, I’ll try to see
Your presence in them, and to bless.
Whenever I fear, I’ll try to trust;
Whenever I fall, to cling.
Whatever dark path I face today,
I’ll shoulder my cross, and say, “Yes.”
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word (Luke 1:38; KJV).
