Whate'er my God ordains is right


Attended the funeral today of a godly woman who suffered colon cancer for several years.  She is now at rest, free from pain and suffering! 

We sang a hymn that was a comfort to her in her most severe moments of pain. 

Only a true child of God – saved by grace – can sing these words with conviction and joy, as she did.

Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Holy his will abideth;
I will be still whate’er he doth,
And follow where he guideth:
He is my God; though dark my road,
He holds me that I cannot fall:
Wherefore to him I leave it all.

Whate’er my God ordains is right;
He never will deceive me;
He leads me by the proper path;
I know he will not leave me:
I take, content, What he hath sent;
His hand can turn my griefs away,
And patiently I wait his day.

Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Though now this cup in drinking,
May bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it, all unshrinking;
My God is true; Each morn anew
Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
And pain and sorrow shall depart.

Whate’er my God ordains is right;
Here shall my stand be taken;
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
Yet am I not forsaken;
My Father’s care is round me there;
He holds me that I cannot fall:
And so to him I leave it all.
