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 – 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.
