Lyrics:
1.  When we are tempted to deny Your Son,
    Because we fear the anger of the world,
    And we are few who bear the insults hurled,
    Your will, O God, be done.

2.  When we are tempted to betray Your Son,
    Because He leads us in a harder way,
    And makes demands we do not want to pay,
    Your will, O God, be done.

3.  When we forget the cross that held Your Son,
    And would avoid the burden of this life,
    The cry for justice and an end to strife,
    Your will, O God, be done.

4.  When doubt obscures the victory of Your Son,
    And faith is weak and all resolve has fled,
    Help us to know Him risen from the dead;
    Your will, O God, be done.
