Seite 300 - Choose Thou for me my friends, My sickness or my health; Choose Thou my cares for me, My poverty or wealth. Not mine, not mine the choice, In things or great or small; Be Thou my guide, my strength, My wisdom, and my all.
Seite 300 - THY way, not mine, O Lord, However dark it be ! Lead me by Thine own hand, Choose out the path for me.
