Change Me

Change Me!

Dear Lord 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.
