I Would Not Have A Hand To Guide

I would not have a hand to guide
But Thine;
For Thou hast trod where sinners stray,
And knowest well life’s troubled way,
And mine.

I would not have a will to rule
But Thine;
For Thou art wise as Thou art good,
And none can better choose what should
Be mine.

Oh, I would tread the sorest path
For Thee;
For Thou canst make the roughest plain,
Give joy for grief, and calm the pain
For me.
