THY WILL BE DONE
Words & Music by Jim Turner

Intro Piano

Verse 1
Could I give up all for thee if that is what is asked of me
To turn and humbly walk away and follow thy spirit come what may
The road ahead no longer clear but thy spirit guides so I do no fear
With time and place already set the Lord’s timetable must be met

Chorus
Thy will be done this day thy will be done Oh Lord
Thy will be done

Verse 2
Would I have the faith to go along the road I do not know
To leave behind a friend so dear and turn from a path that seemed so clear
That day has come the test is here the choice I make so hard yet clear
To give up one so dear to me because the Lord has asked of me

Chorus
Thy will be done this day thy will be done Oh Lord
Thy will be done

Verse 3
Be patient and all will be known yet inside I feel my spirit groan
The test, this test so hard for me but I know my Lord it needs to be
My heart dear Lord is known to thee a faithful servant I strive to be
To build thy kingdom on this earth I must pass this test to prove my worth

Chorus
Thy will be done this day thy will be done Oh Lord
Thy will be done

Bridge Piano

Chorus
Thy will be done this day thy will be done Oh Lord
Thy will be done

Outro Vocal then Piano
This day thy will be done Oh Lord
Thy will be done Piano
