Introduction (full verse) plus 4 verses:

Verse 1:
When in thy wondrous realms above
Our Savior had been called upon
To save our world of sin by love,
He said, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

Verse 2:
The King of Kings left worlds of light,
Became the meek and lowly One,
In brightest day or darkest night,
He said, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

Verse 3:
No crown of thorns, no cruel cross
Could make our great Redeemer shun.
He counted his own will but naught,
And said, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

Verse 4:
We take the bread and cup this day
In mem'ry of the sinless One,
And pray for strength, that we may say,
As he, "Thy will, O Lord, be done."

Manookin studied under Frank W. Asper, Alexander Schreiner, B. Cecil Gates and J. Spencer Cornwall.

Manookin held a master's degree from the University of Illinois and a doctorate from the University of Utah. He first moved to Utah County in 1952.

Several of Manookin's works appeared in the 1985 English edition of the LDS hymnbook. Among these were "Thy Will, O Lord, Be Done" (words by Frank I. Kooyman) and "See The Mighty Priesthood Gathered" (words by Jean L. Kaberry). He also wrote the misic for Bruce R. McConkie's hymn "In an Upper Room" to be made into a hymn as well as Mabel Jones Gabbott's "The Risen Jesus in America".

Manookin was a professor of music composition and theory at Brigham Young University. He also served as a member of the General Church Music Committee of the LDS Church as well as both chorister and pianist at both the ward and stake levels. He was a stake patriarch in the Orem Suncrest Stake until his death.

In 1980 Manookin served an LDS mission in New Zealand with his wife Helene.
