Lyrics:
1.  O God, what You ordain is right,
    Your holy will abiding;
    I shall be still, whate'er You do,
    And follow where You are guiding.
    You are my God; 
    Though dark my road,
    You hold me that I shall not fall;
    Wherefore to You I leave it all.

2.  O God, what You ordain is right;
    You never will deceive me.
    You lead me by the proper path;
    I know You will not leave me.
    And take, content, 
    What You have sent;
    Your hand can turn my griefs away,
    And patiently I wait Your day.

3.  O God, what You ordain is right;
    Here shall my stand be taken.
    Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
    Yet I am not forsaken.
    Your watchful care
    Is round me there;
    You hold me that I shall not fall,
    And so to You I leave it all.
