PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS ON OUR HYMNAL

          My stubborn will at last hath yielded;
          I would be Thine, and Thine alone;
          And this the prayer my lips are bringing,
          Lord, let in me Thy will be done.

            Chorus
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee;
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee.

          I'm tired of sin, footsore and weary,
          The darksome path hath dreary grown,
          But now a light has ris'n to cheer me;
          I find in Thee my Star, my Sun.

            Chorus
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee;
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee.

          Thy precious will, O conqu'ring Saviour,
          Doth now embrace and compass me;
          All discords hushed, my peace a river,
          My soul a prisoned bird set free.

            Chorus
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee;
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee.

          Shut in with Thee, O Lord, forever,
          My wayward feet no more to roam;
          What pow'r from Thee my soul can sever?
          The center of God's will my home.

            Chorus
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee;
            Sweet will of God, still fold me closer,
            Till I am wholly lost in Thee.
