1 I would toil in the field where he calleth me to go,
Tho’ humbly my work may be;
I would ask no more; I only care to know,
‘Tis the way my Lord leadeth me.

Chorus:
‘Tis the way my Lord leadeth me,
‘Tis the way my Lord leadeth me;
I would ask no more;
I only care to know,
‘Tis the way my Lord leadeth me.

2 I would walk in the path where it leadeth unto day,
Tho’ lonely the path might be;
I would take my staff and follow all the way,
‘Tis the way my Lord leadeth me. [Chorus]

3 I would toil in the field where he calleth me to go,
Tho’ barren the soil might be;
Tho’ the way be hard, ‘tis sweet enough to know,
‘Tis the way my Lord leadeth me. [Chorus]
