Hillary’s story behind the song is powerful, but first read the emotion-filled Thy Will lyrics.

Thy Will Lyrics

I’m so confused
I know I heard you loud and clear
So, I followed through
Somehow I ended up here
I don’t wanna think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is a part of your plan
When I try to pray
All I’ve got is hurt and these four words

Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
I know you’re good
But this don’t feel good right now
And I know you think
Of things I could never think about
It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise
Just trying to make sense
Of all your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that you’re God
And I am not
So

Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Like a child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will

I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Goodness you have in store
I know you hear me
I know you see me, Lord
Your plans are for me
Good news you have in store

So, thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Like a child on my knees all that comes to me is
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord

Thy Will Lyrics Hillary Scott

Thy Will – The Story Behind Hillary Scott’s Worship Song

“I wrote this song about a very recent experience that left me heartbroken, asking why, and facing some of my most difficult days. This song is my letter to God. As I ask some really hard questions, I hold onto the truth that there is so much to the story of my life that I can’t see. But, that I still choose to trust Him.” said Hillary.

At first, Hillary didn’t share the private details that inspired the song. She wanted to give listeners a chance to hear the song through their own personal stories before she revealed her own.

After about a year, she shared how working on this song was a type of therapy for her to overcome a great loss. Hillary and her husband, Chris, were expecting their second child when she suffered a miscarriage.

“It was my honest conversation with God about, why do bad things happen? But, ultimately, I trust Your will for my life and that it’s all going to be okay. So being able to write that song was such a part of the healing process for me in the beginning. And now even more so, with it being out and having people’s feedback in their own lives and the stories that they are sharing with me and how this song is touching them.” Hillary said.
