Thy way, O Lord, not mine

Full Text

1 Thy way, O Lord, not mine,
Thy will be done, not mine;
Since Thou for me did bleed,
And now do intercede,
Each day I simply plead,
Thy will be done.

Thy will, Thy will be done,
Thy will, Thy will be done;
Incline my heart each day to say,
"Thy will be done."

2 Thy way, O Lord, not mine,
Let glory all be Thine;
Keep me, lest I may stray,
Near Thee from day to day;
Teach me to watch and pray,
Thy will be done. [Refrain]

3 Hide me from self, O Lord,
May I attend Thy word;
Send pride beyond recall,
Let each assailer fall,
Be Thou my all in all,
Thy will be done. [Refrain]

4 Submissively I bow;
With strength and grace endow
This weary, sinful heart;
Shield from each cruel dart;
May I from Thee ne'er part,
Thy will be done. [Refrain]
