Sometimes I wonder what is best
in the way that I should go.
Sometimes I really struggle
because I really want to know.
I want God's will, but it is hard
to know what's right for me,
But 'midst these thoughts I firmly feel
--the best is yet to be.
"I know the plans I have for you,"
I hear my Savior say;
"Plans to prosper, not to harm you,
if you willingly obey.
Listen closely, I will tell you,
look around and you will see,
Things look dark for now, I know,
--but the best is yet to be."
This will, this plan, God has for me
may not be what I think.
I can struggle, I can fight it,
from my duty I may shrink.
But no peace will be my pillow,
and my dreams will not be free
'Til I yield my own desirings,
--'cause the best is yet to be.
There is beauty in this trusting,
my life with riches He can fill.
I know the best, God's best for me,
is being in His perfect will.
God's will is the best for now,
but there's a better best for me---
There's a heaven in my vision,
--and the best is yet to be!
