Acts 16:6-8 (Listen)

The Macedonian Call

And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them. So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 416 : Oh, That the Lord Would Guide My Ways Hymnary.org link

1. Oh, that the Lord would guide my ways 
To keep His statutes still! 
Oh, that my God would grant me grace 
To know and do His will! 

2. Order my footsteps by Thy Word 
And make my heart sincere; 
Let sin have no dominion, Lord, 
But keep my conscience clear. 

3. Assist my soul, too apt to stray, 
A stricter watch to keep; 
And should I e’er forget Thy way, 
Restore Thy wandering sheep. 

4. Make me to walk in Thy commands,– 
‘Tis a delightful road,– 
Nor let my head or heart or hands 
Offend against my God.
