A German hymn, translated to English, and sung in India. “My God desires each soul’s salvation, My soul he too desires to save; Therefore with Christian resignation, All earthly troubles I will brave.”
Dear Lord, may it be so today and ever. Amen. Lyrics below the video.
I Leave All Things to God's Direction By: Salomo Franck I leave all things to God's direction, For he loves me in wealth or woe; His will is good, and his affection, His tender love is true, I know. My strength, my fortress rock is he: What pleases God, that pleases me. My God has all things in his keeping, He is my ever faithful friend; He gives me laughter after weeping, And all his ways in blessing end. His love endures eternally: What pleases God, that pleases me. The will of God shall be my pleasure While here I live life's interim; My will is wrong beyond all measure, It does not will what pleases him. The Christian's motto then must be: What pleases God, that pleases me. God knows what must be done to save me, His love for me will never cease; And all my sins my Lord forgave me With purest gold of loving grace. His will supreme must ever be: What pleases God, that pleases me. My God desires each soul's salvation, My soul he too desires to save; Therefore with Christian resignation All earthly troubles I will brave. His will be done eternally: What pleases God, that pleases me. Hymn # 429 Lutheran Worship Author: Georg Neumark Tune: Wer Nur Den Lieben Gott 1st Published in: 1685
