1. Before the witnessing cosmos,
Christ testified it is a better thing
To suffer any loss than to depart
In any manner from God’s will.

Refrain
For thus God gave His Son to die for ev’ryone;
    It was not drudgery, it was heart work!
We plead such willing hearts to do God’s will as sons,
    To instantly obey and trust.

2. If we consent to the Saviour,
He’ll blend our hearts and minds with His own will,
That when obeying Him we shall
But carry out the impulse of our heart.
Refrain

3. Those who decide to do nothing
In any line that will displease their God,
After presenting their case unto Him,
Will know what course they must pursue.
Refrain

– based on The Desire of Ages, p. 121, 668

This song is drawn from three statements in The Desire of Ages, which are fundamental to the message of the gospel for our time:

The Desire of Ages, p. 121
In the presence of the witnessing universe, He [Christ] testified that it is a less calamity to suffer whatever may befall than to depart in any manner from the will of God.

The Desire of Ages, p. 668
All true obedience comes from the heart. It was heart work with Christ. And if we consent, He will so identify Himself with our thoughts and aims, so blend our hearts and minds into conformity to His will, that when obeying Him we shall be but carrying out our own impulses. The will, refined and sanctified, will find its highest delight in doing His service. When we know God as it is our privilege to know Him, our life will be a life of continual obedience.

The Desire of Ages, p. 668
Those who decide to do nothing in any line that will displease God, will know, after presenting their case before Him, just what course to pursue.
