Hymn: TLH 532, st. 1,2: Thy Way, Not Mine, O Lord

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Thy way, not mine, O Lord, 
However dark it be. 
Lead me by Thine own hand; 
Choose Thou the path for me. 
I dare not choose my lot; 
I would not if I might. 
Choose Thou for me, my God; 
So shall I walk aright. 

2. Choose Thou for me my friends, 
My sickness or my health; 
Choose Thou my cares for me, 
My poverty or wealth. 
Not mine, not mine, the choice, 
In things or great or small; 
Be Thou my Guide, my Strength, 
My Wisdom, and my All.
