Lyrics: Verse 1
Behold the sun has risen,
I feel it warm my face.
Handmaiden bring me cloth of gold,
My finest for today,
To meet what lies before me,
I bring my strengths to bear:
I call upon my beauty,
But I count upon my prayers.

Verse 2
Today I seek unbidden,
A favor of the king;
Hand maiden bring me oil of myrrh
And all my precious things.
I’ll do my best to please him,
Yet know without a doubt
He has no power over me,
Except the power God allows

Chorus
I cannot fail
This work is mine to do;
I must not fear
What things I must pass through;
For God will not permit
His work to go amiss.
Has not He given me these gifts
For such a time as this?


Verse 3
I know God is almighty;
His wisdom knows no bounds;
Handmaiden, will you pray with me
That wisdom may be found?
Although my heart is willing
To do what God requests;
No knowing what will happen,
May be for me the hardest test.

Repeat Chorus
