Thy Will Be Done

I heard Thy Will Be Done by Hillary Scott (of Lady Antebellum) and the Scott Family for the first time yesterday.

It reminds me of that first major hurdle of my Christian life when I almost lost my faith in a good God almost four years ago (though it had been building like a storm years before even that). It still amazes me that I emerged from that experience at all, but this song resonates with that experience.

And.

I expect it will resonate with future experience.

I’m so confused
I know I heard you loud and clear
So, I followed through
Somehow I ended up here
I don’t want to think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is part of your plan
When I try to pray
All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Chorus:

Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done

I know that you’re good
But this don’t feel good right now
And I know you think
Of things I could never think about
It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise
Just trying to make sense
Of all your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that you are God
And I am not
So,

Chorus:

Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Like a Child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done

I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness you have in store

I know you hear me
I know you see me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness you have in store
So,

Chorus:

Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Like a Child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done
Thy Will be done

I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord
