• “Jesus died as He had lived: praying, forgiving, loving, sacrificing, trusting, quoting Scripture. If I die as I have lived, how will I die?” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Thirty-First Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Just When Thou Wilt

I.
JUST when Thou wilt, O Master, call,
Or at the noon, or evening fall,
Or in the dark, or in the light,—
Just when Thou wilt, it must be right.

II.
Just when Thou wilt, O Saviour, come.
Take me to dwell in Thy bright home !
Or when the snows have crowned my head.
Or ere it hath one silver thread.

III.
Just when Thou wilt, O Bridegroom, say,
‘Rise up, my love, and come away’
Open to me Thy golden gate.
Just when Thou wilt, or soon, or late.

IV.
Just when Thou wilt—Thy time is best—
Thou shalt appoint my hour of rest,
Marked by the Sun of perfect love,
Shining unchangeably above.

V.
Just when Thou wilt!—no choice for me !
Life is a gift to use for Thee ;
Death is a hushed and glorious tryst,
With Thee, my King, my Saviour, Christ!
