I admit

Lord,

1. I admit
That your way
Is the best.

2. I commit
To loving
Your dear Son.

3. I submit
To every trial
And test.

4. I’m unfit –
Yet you and I
Are one.

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying,
“This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21; NIV).

Lord,

1. You always know what I
Should think, and say, and do:
May I follow in your steps
So I grow more like you.

2. May I listen to your words
As you explain God’s way,
So I can try my hardest, Lord,
To be like you today.

3. May I hear your still, small voice
That whispers what is best,
And follow your example
As I learn from every test.

4. May I make God’s law my own
When I face fire and flood,
Then I will slowly learn, like you,
To walk God’s way of love.
