                 (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.
