Herbert’s ‘Submission’ can be understood on several levels. It can reference one’s place in society or it can address any conflict that makes us wrestle with our relationship to God. “Submission” assures us that He will give us the means of resolution and the grace to embrace his will.

Lyrics

Submission
(George Herbert)
Music by James Collignon

But that thou art my wisdom, Lord,
And both mine eyes are thine,
My mind would be extremely stirr’d
For missing my design.

Were it not better to bestow
Some place and power on me?
Then should thy praises with me grow,
And share in my degree.

But when I thus dispute and grieve,
I do resume my sight,
And pilf’ring what I once did give,
Disseize thee of thy right

How know I, if thou shouldst me raise,
That I should then raise thee?
Perhaps great places and thy praise
Do not so well agree.

Wherefore unto my gift I stand;
I will no more advise:
Only do thou lend me a hand,
Since thou hast both me eyes.
