HYMN 846

“Teach me Thy way, O Lord.”
 - Ps.27:11 
Tune: Jesu oro Re ye

1.  THY way, not mine, O Lord 

     However dark it be! 

     Lead me by Thine own hand 

     Choose out the path for me.

2.  Smooth let it be or rough

     It will be still the best 

     Winding or straight, it leads

     Right onward to Thy rest.

3.  I dare not choose my lot

     I would not, If I might 

     Choose Thou for me, my God 

     So shall I walk aright.

4.  The kingdom that I seek 

     Is Thine, so let the way 

     That leads to it be Thine 

     Else I must surely stray.

5.  Take Thou my cup, and it 

     With joy or sorrow fill

     As best to Thee may seem 

    Choose Thou my good and ill.

6.  Not mine, not mine the choice

     In things of great or small

     Be Thou my Guide, my Strength 

     My Wisdom, and my All.  Amen
