It may not be on the mountain height or over the stormy sea, It may not be at the battle’s front my Lord will have need of me. But if by a still, small voice He calls to paths that I do not know, I’ll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in Thine…
Perhaps today there are loving words that Jesus would have me speak; There may be now in the paths of sin some wand’rer who I should seek. O Savior, if Thou wilt be my guide, though dark and rugged the way, My voice shall echo the message sweet:
There’s surely somewhere a lowly place in earth’s harvest fields so wide Where I may labor through life’s short day for Jesus the Crucified. So trusting my all to Thy tender care, and knowing Thou lovest me, I’ll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in Thine:
I’ll go where You want me to go! I’ll say what You want me to say! I’ll be what You want me to be!
