Your way, not mine, O Lord

Your way, not mine, O Lord,
whatever it may be;
lead me by your own hand,
choose out the road for me.

2. Smooth let it be or rough,
your path will be the best;
direct or winding, still
it leads me to your rest.

3. I dare not choose my life,
I would not if I might;
choose for me, O my God;
your choice is sure and right.

4. Then fill my cup, O Lord,
according to your will,
with sorrow or with joy;
choose all my good or ill.

5. And choose my friends for me,
my sickness or my health,
choose for me my concerns,
my poverty or wealth.

6. Not mine but yours the choice
in things both great and small;
Lord, be my guide, my strength,
my wisdom and my all.
