Verse #1: I wish I could tell you just what I want,
And you give it to me just like that
The truth of the matter
What I want just might hurt me
And you won't let me go out like that
You know my end before my beginning
Calculated blessings down to the penny
So I'll cry 'til you tell me, 'Let it go, let it be'
'Cause oh, Lord, Lord Your will is what's best for me.
Verse #2: No rubies, no diamonds, no silver or no pearls
There are some lessons that I had to learn
That I would not trade in for the world
You told me that my trials Only come to make me strong
And with this you promised, Never to leave me alone.
So I'll cry til you tell me, 'Let it go, let it be'
oh,oh, oh Lord Your will is what's best for me.
Your word is true, and it will last You will guide the future as you have the past.
At times I cannot see, but I know that it's so You love me more than I'll ever know
So I'll cry til you tell me, 'Let it go let it be
oh,oh,oh, Lord, Your will is what's best for me.
