Thy way, not mine, O Lord (Alternate Tune)

1
Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
  However dark it be;
Lead me by Thine own hand,
  Choose out the Path for me.
2
Smooth let it be, or rough,
  It will be still the best;
Winding or straight it leads
  Right onward to Thy rest.
3
I dare not choose my lot;
  I would not if I might:
Choose Thou for me, my God,
  So shall I walk aright.
4
Take Thou my cup, and it
  With joy or sorrow fill,
As best to Thee may seem;
  Choose Thou my good and ill.
5
Choose Thou for me my friends,
  My sickness or my health.
Choose Thou my cares for me,
  My poverty or wealth.
6
Not mine, not mine the choice,
  In things both great and small;
Be Thou my guide, my strength,
  My wisdom and my all.
