Representative Text

1 I choose Thee, blessed will of God!
In Thee alone, my heart can rest,
The current of Thy love, I know
Can only bear me to Thy breast.

Refrain:
I choose Thee, blessed will of God!
In Thee alone, my heart can rest.

2 I choose Thee, blessed will of God!
No longer shall this will of mine
In selfish blindness to Thy love,
Its hateful choice and strength combine. [Refrain]

3 I choose Thee, blessed will of God!
The sweetest thing my heart hath known
A chariot my God hath sent
To bear me upward to His throne. [Refrain]

4 I choose Thee, blessed will of God!
For in the circling of Thine arms,
The gladdest Spring of Joy I find;
Outside Thee fears and strange alarms. [Refrain]
