Change not Thy will in my life
Or trial and sorrows to be
Renew my faith and make me strong
Change not Thy will, change me!
Though teardrops fall when trouble comes
Like storms on a rolling sea
Let Thy beacon guide my ship to port
Change not the storm, change me!
When Thy Holy Word I don’t understand
And Thy Glory I cannot see
Teach my eyes, give me sight and wisdom
Change not Thy Word, change me!
If the fruit Thou hast given me to eat
Taste bitter and sour, I plea
Let not my will but Thine be done
Change not the fruit, change me!
If sometime I murmur and grumble, Dear Lord
About the cross I carry for Thee
Keep it firm on my shoulders, but hold my hand
Change not the cross, change me!
If You change Thy ways to please me, Dear Lord
I would soon grow cold and turn from Thee
That You may hear my prayers, Dear Lord
Change not Thy ways, change me!
There’s a valley that I must cross
Someday Thy face to see
Lest I forget what power is Thine
Change not the valley, change me!
