To What Do I Yield?

It is my own choice
This life that I live
In so many ways
I get what I give
Where are my thoughts?
To what do I yield?
Is it my own desire?
Or God’s holy appeal?
Such freedom I have
To set my own path
To harden my heart
Or with Christ my lot cast
To what do I yield?
What life do I seek?
One building me up?
Or one making me weak?
The choices I make
Can bring hope or great woe
I need more than I have
To decide where I go
To what do I yield?
To whom shall I turn?
Will I choose what I know?
Or am I willing to learn?
I know the right answer
And now it’s my prayer
Lord only your Spirit
Can save from despair
So I choose to yield
To God’s gracious voice
I’ll go where he sends me
Letting Him guide my choice
