Thy way, not mine, O Lord

1
Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
  However dark it be;
Lead me by Thine own hand,
  Choose out the Path for me.
  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.

Lead me by Thine own hand,

Choose out the Path for me.

Amen.

This is such an encouraging hymn. Thank You Lord Jesus.

Choose Thou for me my friends,

My sickness or my health.

Choose Thou my cares for me,

My poverty or wealth.

Have Thine own way Lord Jesus, whatever betides, just perfect Your life and nature in me!
