Let the Lord Have His Way

I first learned this song in my home church several years ago. At the time, it seemed this song was the "theme" song for both the church and school. Anyway, I remember taking a copy of the song back to college and soon we were singing it during dorm devotions as well.

On the last Sunday of the month, the Youth Choir sings a song that they have been practicing all month long. Today's song was, Let the Lord Have His Way. I think the first verse is common; the last two were written by a lady in our church in response to the Pastor's request for more verses for the song! I hope this song can be a prayer, a reminder, a challenge...a blessing--for you.

Let the Lord Have His Way

Let the Lord have His way,
In your life ev'ry day,
There's no rest, there's no peace,
Until the Lord has His way.
Place your life in His Hand,
Rest secure in His plan.
Let the Lord,
Let the Lord have His way!

Let the Lord take control,
Give your heart, give your soul.
Trust His Word, God knows best,
He'll see you through ev'ry test.
In the storm, in His will--
Hear His voice, "Peace be still."
Let the Lord,
Let the Lord take control!

Let the Lord be seen in you,
Ev'ry day in all you do;
In your words, in your smile--
Is He there all the while?
Let His love flow right through,
Touching friend and neighbour too.
Let the Lord,
Let the Lord shine through you!
