My Sunday Song – “Thy Will” by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family

Welcome to “My Sunday Song”.  Every Sunday, I am now going to feature a song that moves me in someway.  It will have a positive message and most likely have a strong religious message.  I feel the world could always use something positive.

My first song is “Thy Will”.  It is off the brand new album by Hillary Scott & the Scott Family called ‘Love Remains’.  I featured the video on Friday New Releases, but I hadn’t really listened to the song until this past Monday.

Hillary’s voice was so beautiful and the words were so moving that I wanted to hear it again and again.  When a song touches me in someway, I have to hit repeat and I ended up listening to the song many, many times on the drive home from work.

There was a verse in it the song that struck me as so true and I know I have done it before as well probably have all of you.  The verse was “Sometimes I gotta stop, Remember that you’re God and I am not.”  I thought that was such a powerful statement.

The song was written by Scott with the help of Emily Wiseband and Bernie Herms. You can read the story behind the song at the Boot.com.  Per the article, the song stems from Scott’s “own personal tragedy, when a much-wanted pregnancy ended in miscarriage.”  If the song doesn’t tear at your heart, you have no soul.

Here is the song.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Have a great Sunday.

Lyrics:

“Thy Will”

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
