Lyrics

I have yielded myself to Thy service,
And Thy presence my bosom doth fill;
O my Savior, I haste to obey Thee,
And my heart says amen to Thy will.

Refrain

Yes, my heart says amen to Thy will, Lord,
And I know that Thou lovest me still,
While I bow low in humble submission,
And my heart says amen to Thy will.

All the pleasures of earth may be sundered,
So that I may Thy purpose fulfill;
Help me gladly submit and not murmur,
Ever saying amen to Thy will.

Refrain

Tho’ my plans and my hopes may seem blighted,
I will love Thee and trust in Thee still,
For I know all is well that Thou doest,
And my heart says amen to Thy will.

Refrain

When I pass to that heavenly country,
And my soul with its glory doth thrill,
This forever shall be my rejoicing,
That my heart says amen to Thy will.
