An Old Hymn Text That's New to Me

I have found a deep peace that I never had known
And a joy this world could not afford
Since I yielded control of my body and soul
To my wonderful, wonderful Lord.

I desire that my life shall be ordered by Thee
That my will be in perfect accord
With Thine own sov'reign will
Thy desires to fulfill
My wonderful, wonderful Lord

All the talents I have I have laid at Thy Feet
Thy approval shall be my reward
Be my store great or small
I surrender it all
To my wonderful, wonderful Lord
--Haldor Lillenas
