1 Just as God leads me I would go;
I would not ask to choose my way,
Content with what He will bestow,
Assured He will not let me stray.
So, as He leads, my path I make,
And step by step I gladly take,
A child in Him confiding.
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,
I would that He should all fulfill;
That I should do His gracious will,
In living or in dying.
3 Just as God leads, I will resign;
I trust me to my Father’s will;
When reason’s rays deceptive shine,
His counsel would I yet fulfill;
That which His love ordained as right,
Before He brought me to the light,
My all to Him resigning.
