lyricssovereign

What e’re my God ordains is right,
holy His will abideth
I will be still what e’re He does
and follow where He guideth
He is my God,
though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall
Wherefore to Him I leave it allWhat e’re my God ordains is right,

He never will deceive me

He leads me by the proper path,

I know He will not leave me
I take content,

what He hath sent,

His hand can turn my griefs away
And patiently I wait His day

What e’re my God ordains is right,

though now this cup in drinking
May bitter seem to my faint heart,

I take it all unshrinking
My God is true,

each morn’ a new,

sweet comfort yet,

shall fill my heart
And pain and sorrow shall depart

What e’re my God ordains is right,

here shall my stand be taken
Though sorrow,

need, or death be mine,

Yet I am not forsaken
My Father’s care is ’round me there,

He holds me that I shall not fall
And so to Him I leave it all

Help my unbelief
May my faith abound
Let me seek you and know that you may be found

When this life is done
In the clearer light
I may see you with full and with endless sight

  1. I love Matthew Smith but I first learned of this song under Indelible Grace Music: http://hymnbook.igracemusic.com/hymns/whateer-my-god-ordains-is-right

    Either way, great lyrics!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, my dear brother. Yes! The message is the important thing, as either artist would agree. What EVER our God ordains is RIGHT!
