1 Just as God leads me, I would go,
I would not ask to choose my way;
Content with what he will bestow,
Knowing he will not let me stray.

Refrain:
Trusting in Jesus, day by day,
Following just as he leads the way;
Never a choice in great or small,
Doing his will and that is all.

2 Just as God leads, I am content;
I rest me calmly in his hands;
That which he has decreed and sent,
That which his will for me commands. [Refrain]

3 Just as God leads me, I abide
In faith, in hope, in suff’ring, true;
His strength is ever by my side—
Can aught my hold on him undo? [Refrain]

4 Just as he leads, I onward go,
Oft amid thorns and briars keen;
God does not yet his guidance show,
But in the end it shall be seen. [Refrain]
