* “What God Ordains”               – S. Gastorius, arr. D. Forrest

What God ordains is always good; His will is just and holy.

As He directs my life for me, I follow meek and lowly,

My God indeed in ev’ry need Knows well how He will shield me;

To Him, then, I will yield me.

What God ordains is always good; He is my friend and Father;

He suffers naught to do me harm though many storms may gather.

Now I may know both joy and woe; Someday I shall see clearly

That He has loved me dearly.

What God ordains is always good; This truth remains unshaken;

Though sorrow, need, or death be mine, I shall not be forsaken.

I fear no harm, for with His arm, He shall embrace and shield me;

So to my God I yield me.                                                          - S. Rodigast
