In All My Lord's Appointed Ways

Representative Text

1 In all my Lord's appointed ways,
My journey I'll pursue,
Hinder me not, ye much loved saints,
For I must go with you.

2 Thro' floods and flames, if Jesus lead,
I'll follow where He goes;
Hinder me not shall be my cry,
Tho' earth and hell oppose.

3 Thro' duties and thro' trials, too,
I'll go at His command;
Hinder me not, for I am bound
To my Immanuel's land.

4 And when my Saviour calls me home,
Still this my cry shall be;
Hinder me not! come welcome death,
I'll gladly go with thee.
