Wait Patiently

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.
