Not My Will

Oh my Jesus, Lord and Christ,
I weep to You tonight.
I've stumbled in the darkness, Lord,
I cannot see the light.

My burden is so heavy, Lord,
These chains all drag me down.
I've fallen into darkness, Lord,
Please do not let me drown.

Must I walk this path alone?
Can't You see my pain?
Guide me with Your mighty Hand
Through blinding wind and rain.

Sustain me with Your tender care
And with Your love divine.
Yet through it all, this is my prayer:
Not my own will, but Thine.
