God’s Unfolding Will
God’s will is like a flower bud
Unfolding day by day –
We watch its course expectantly
And learn to watch and pray.
The petals open one by one –
At times it seems so slow,
Until we catch a broader glimpse
And see the blossom glow.
For as the bloom at last unfolds,
Its beauty comes to light –
And what we hoped with eager hearts
Is open to our sight.
Lord, I will do as You direct,
And watch Your plan unfold –
For step by step Your loving skill
And wisdom I behold.
