    Dear Lord change not Thy will in my life,
    Or trial and sorrows to be;
    Renew my faith and make me strong,
    Change not Thy will, change me.

    Though teardrops fall when trouble comes,
    Like storms on a rolling sea;
    Let Thy beacon guide my ship to port,
    Change not the storm, change me.

    When Thy Holy Word I don't understand
    And Thy glory I cannot see;
    Teach my eyes, give me sight and wisdom,
    Change not Thy Word, change me.

    If the fruit Thou hast given me to eat,
    Taste bitter and sour, I plea;
    Let not my will but Thine be done,
    Change not the fruit, change me.

    If sometime I murmur and grumble, dear Lord,
    About the cross I carry for Thee;
    Keep it firm on my shoulders, but hold my hand,
    Change not the cross, change me.

    If You change Thy ways to please me, dear Lord,
    I would soon grow cold and turn from Thee;
    That You may hear my prayers, dear Lord,
    Change not Thy ways, change me.

    There's a valley that I must cross,
    Someday Thy face to see;
    Lest I forget what power is Thine,
    Change not the valley, change me.
