Be my wisdom

However dark it be;

Lead me by thine own hand,

Choose out the path for me.

Smooth let it be or rough,

It will be still the best;

Winding or straight, it leads

Right onward to thy rest.

Choose thou for me my friends,

My sickness or my health;

Choose thou my cares for me,

My poverty or wealth.

Not mine, not mine the choice

In things or great or small;

Be thou my guide, my strength,

My wisdom and my all.


Horatius Bonar (1808-89).
