I've Set My Path to Serve Thee (Newton)
I’ve set my path to serve thee Wherever thou would ask.
It matter not how hard the road, How difficult the task.
I may not pass through land I know, But still my steps are sure.
I only seek to do thy will, and with thee I’m secure.
I may give up the glories Men heap upon their own.
Perhaps amid their cries of scorn. I’ll seem to walk alone.
Yet heedless I will still press on, The rod clasped in my hand.
I’ll plod through mists but never doubt, Until I understand.
So many of thy children Are lost and cannot see.
With arms outstretched I’ll beckon them to come and walk with me.
Together we will mark the path That leads unto thy throne.
Until at last, with shouts of joy, We all are welcomed home.
