Have Thine own way, Lord

Have Thine own way, Lord,
  Have Thine own way;
Thou art the Potter,
  I am the clay.
Mould me and make me
  After Thy will,
While I am waiting,
  Yielded and still.
Have Thine own way, Lord,
  Have Thine own way;
Search me and try me,
  Master, today.
Whiter than snow, Lord,
  Wash me just now,
As in Thy presence
  Humbly I bow.
Have Thine own way, Lord,
  Have Thine own way;
Wounded and weary,
  Help me, I pray.
Power, all power,
  Surely is Thine,
Touch me and heal me,
  Savior divine.
Have Thine own way, Lord,
  Have Thine own way;
Hold o’er my being
  Absolute sway.
Fill with Thy Spirit
  Till all shall see
Christ only, always,
  Living in me.

Dede, I read your comment and wanted you to know I am praying for you! God will strengthen you as you seek Him first and trust in His goodness, mercy and love. Continue to be encouraged by this hymn and commit yourself to being willing clay in The Potter's hands.

It has been a one-day-at-a-time journey for me for the past 33 years. He is mighty to save! Trusting that the Lord will bless and keep you! ~Sharon

Powerful lyrics. Interesting to note that the companion to this hymn is the hymn I Surrender All which was published around the same time as Have Thine Own Way.

This song brings back wonderful memories of worship as a child! It expresses my desire for today.

Oh to be that submissive!
