“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 37:5


Commit everything you do to the Lord.

Trust Him, and He will help you.

– Psalm 37:5



Thy way, not mine, O Lord,

however dark it be;

lead me by Thine own hand,

choose out the Path for me.


Smooth let it be, or rough,

it will be still the best;

winding or straight, it leads

right onward to Thy rest.


I dare not choose my lot;

I would not, if I might;

choose Thou for me, my God,

so I shall walk aright.


The Kingdom that I seek

is Thine; so let the way

that leads to it be Thine,

else I must surely stray.


Take Thou my cup, and it

with joy or sorrow fill,

as best to Thee may seem;

choose Thou my good and ill.


Choose Thou for me my friends,

my sickness or my health;

choose Thou my cares for me

my poverty or wealth.


Not mine, not mine the choice

in things or great or small;

be Thou my Guide, my Strength

my Wisdom and my All.


[*] Today’s prayer is the beautiful prayer/hymn by Horatius Bonar, (1808-1889) – “Thy way, not mine, O Lord.”
