"Thy Way, Not Mine, 0 Lord"
by Horatius Bonar, 1808-1899
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. Thy way, not mine, 0 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.
