“THY WILL BE DONE”
How often, Lord, I try to choose
The path for Thee:
Instead of asking Thee to choose
My path for me,
The chosen path of safety, Lord,
Thy choice must be.
Sometimes in earnest pleading prayer
I seem to see,
A way that looks like mine,
O, may I leave Thee free
To choose, and plan, and open up
Thy path for me.
