Johnny Cash: Thy will be done

According to the Westminster Shorter Catechism, when we pray “Thy will be done” we pray that God would graciously “make us able and willing to know, obey, and submit to His will in all things.” Here is a Johnny Cash poem called “Sunset,” from 1996:

I’ll tell you how the sun set.
As shadows marched in lines.
And God sent west his rainbows.
A color at a time.

The hills put on their blankets.
The hawk and crow were done.
And as I said softly in twilight.
See you tomorrow, sun.

I sat out in the darkness.
And felt the dew drops fall.
I watched the moon rise in its place.
I heard the night birds call.

God’s world, in perfect order.
In line, one after one.
May I be in accordance.
On my last setting sun.
