Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Thy way, O Lord, not mine

Full Text

1 Thy way, O Lord, not mine,
Thy will be done, not mine;
Since Thou for me did bleed,
And now do intercede,
Each day I simply plead,
Thy will be done.

Refrain:
Thy will, Thy will be done,
Thy will, Thy will be done;
Incline my heart each day to say,
"Thy will be done."

2 Thy way, O Lord, not mine,
Let glory all be Thine;
Keep me, lest I may stray,
Near Thee from day to day;
Teach me to watch and pray,
Thy will be done. [Refrain]

3 Hide me from self, O Lord,
May I attend Thy word;
Send pride beyond recall,
Let each assailer fall,
Be Thou my all in all,
Thy will be done. [Refrain]

4 Submissively I bow;
With strength and grace endow
This weary, sinful heart;
Shield from each cruel dart;
May I from Thee ne'er part,
Thy will be done. [Refrain]
