Thou Breath from still eternity

1
Thou Breath from still eternity
  Breathe o'er my spirit's barren land—
The pine tree and the myrtle tree
  Shall spring amid the desert sand;
And where Thy living water flows
  The waste shall blossom as the rose.
2
May I in will and deed and word
  Obey Thee as a little child;
And keep me in Thy love, my Lord,
  For ever holy, undefiled;
Within me teach, and strive, and pray,
  Lest I should choose my own wild way.
3
Thy Spirit, Stream by Thee, the Son,
  Is opened to us crystal pure,
Forth flowing from the heavenly throne
  To waiting hearts and spirits poor;
Athirst and weary do I sink
  Beside Thy waters, there to drink.
4
My spirit turns to Thee and clings,
  All else forsaking, unto Thee;
Forgetting all created things,
  Remembering only "God in me."
Thy living Stream, Thy gracious Rain,
  None wait for these, and wait in vain.

On a drive home this tune rose up in my being; I couldn't recall any of the words except, "lest I should choose my own wild way". I found it humorous of the Lord that those were the words He gave me but I was also very humbled in realizing how many times the Lord has saved me from choosing my own wild way. Thank You Lord for Your keeping power, Thy living stream and Thy gracious rain! ❤

May I in will and deed and word

Obey Thee as a little child;

And keep me in Thy love, my Lord,

For ever holy, undefiled.
