Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God.
Teach me to do Thy will, for Thou art my God.
Lo! I come with joy to do
The Father’s blessed will;
Him in outward works pursue,
And serve His pleasure still.
Faithful to my Lord’s commands,
I still would choose the better part;
Serve with careful Martha’s hands,
And loving Mary’s heart.
~ C. WESLEY
A soul cannot be regarded as truly subdued and consecrated in its will, and as having passed into union with the Divine will, until it has a disposition to do promptly and faithfully all that God requires, as well as to endure patiently and thankfully all that He imposes.
~ T. C. UPHAM
When we have learned to offer up every duty connected with our situation in life as a sacrifice to God, a settled employment becomes just a settled habit of prayer.
~ THOMAS ERSKINE
“Do the duty which lies nearest thee,” which thou knowest to be a duty. Thy second duty will already have become clearer.
