Have Thine Own Way, Lord

Sunday I had the privilege to go to St. Andrew's church in Sanford, Florida where Dr. R. C. Sproul is the teaching pastor. To close the service we sang a hymn entitled Have Thine Own Way, Lord which was beautiful because it helped me remember that God is sovereign over all our plans. For his children we know his way is best.

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Thou art the potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after thy will,
while I am waiting, yielded and still.

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Search me and try me, Savior today!
Wash me just now, Lord, wash me just now,
as in thy presence humbly I bow.

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Wounded and weary, help me I pray!
Power, all power, surely is thine!
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine!

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Hold o'er my being absolute sway.
Fill with thy Spirit till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me! (Adelaide A. Pollard)

Grace upon grace,
JRL
