Just As Seemeth Good to Thee

Representative Text

1 Choose my path, O blessed Saviour,
Let me, trusting, lean on thee;
Order thou life's joys and duties,
Just as seemeth good to thee.

Just as seemeth good to thee,
Just as seemeth good to thee;
Order thou my steps, dear Saviour,
Just as seemeth good to thee.

2 Let thy wisdom guide me ever,
For I dare not trust my own;
Lead thou me in tender mercy,
Leave me not to walk alone. [Chorus]

3 Life is full of cares perplexing,
And alone, I lose the way;
Keep me near to thee, dear Saviour,
Choose for me the path, I pray. [Chorus]
