I do not ask, O Lord that life may be

1. I do not ask, O Lord,
that life may be
A pleasant road;
I do not ask that Thou
wouldst take from me
Aught of its load.

2. I do not ask that flowers
should always spring
Beneath my feet;
I know too well
the poison and the sting
Of things too sweet.

3. For one thing, only Lord,
dear Lord, I plead:
Lead me aright,
Though strength should falter
and though heart should bleed,
Through peace to light.

4. I do not ask, O Lord,
that Thou shouldst shed
Full radiance here
Give but a ray of peace,
that I may tread
Without a fear.

5. I do not ask my cross
to understand,
My way to see;
Better in darkness
just to feel Thy hand,
And follow Thee.

6. Joy is like restless day;
but peace divine
Like quiet night:
Lead me, O Lord,
till perfect day shall shine,
Through peace to light.
