In acceptance lieth peace. O my heart be still;
Let thy restless worries cease and accept His will.
Though this test be not thy choice;
It is His—therefore rejoice.
In His plan there cannot be aught to make thee sad:
If this is His choice for thee, take it and be glad.
Make from it some lovely thing
To the glory of thy King.
Cease from sighs and murmuring. Sing His loving grace.
This thing means thy furthering to a wealthy place.
From thy fears He’ll give release,
In acceptance lieth peace.

—Amy Carmichael
