‘Your will be done’

James 4:2,3  Matthew 6:10
Our God does not act when we’d like,
and as we think he should, –
but do we ask, and pray, and want
our King to work much good?

‘You do not have from God because,
you don’t ask for what will
bring honour, glory to his name
his saving work fulfil.’

We must not be complacent in
the days of little things,
content when apathy abounds,
and few repent of sins.

‘You do not have from God because,
you don’t ask for what will
demand some sacrifice, and tasks
for which you’ve little skill.’

And those that pray in faith, submit
to costly, risky toil
in seeking to make known God’s Word
– from such do I recoil?

‘Your kingdom come, Your will be done
on earth as now in heaven,
and touch our lips with wisdom, as
we live as we are bidden.’

Expect great things from God for he
his foes will all subdue,
and countless numbers will give praise,
(his people won’t be few).

‘Your kingdom come, Your will be done
on earth as now in heaven,
and all we need to wisely serve
be daily to us given.’
