The path that I have trod has brought me nearer God<br />
Though oft it led thru sorrow's gates<br />
Though not the way I'd choose, in my way I might lose<br />
The joy that yet for me awaits.
<em>Not what I wish to be, nor where I wish to go<br />
For who am I that I should choose my way<br />
The Lord shall choose for me, tis better far I know<br />
So let Him bid me go, or stay.</em>
The cross that I must bear if I a crown would wear<br />
Is not the cross that I should take<br />
But since on me tis laid I'll take it unafraid<br />
And bear it for the Master's sake.
Submission to the will of Him who guides me still<br />
Is surety of His love revealed<br />
My soul shall rise above this world in which I move<br />
I conquer only when I yield.
