Lord, teach me patience as I plod along,
Help me to understand when I’m not strong
That in whatever way my Savior leads
He’s promised to supply my daily needs.
So often I would run ahead impatiently
Instead of following His path for me.
“If I could know what lies ahead
Then I would better know the way to tread.”
Lord, help me see the folly of this thought;
For Thou dost know; the path by Thee was wrought!
If I should try my own way to pursue,
I’d stumble blindly just to make it through.
My plans would end in failure, trusting me—
Teach me to wait with patience, Lord, for Thee.
