Let Him Have His Way With Thee (Hymn)

Let Him Have His Way With Thee
Cyrus Nusbaum

Would you live for Jesus, and be always pure and good?
Would you walk with Him within the narrow road?
Would you have Him bear your burden, carry all your load?
Let Him have His way with thee.

His power can make you what you ought to be;
His blood can cleanse your heart and make you free;
His love can fill your soul, and you will see.
‘Twas best for Him to have His way with thee.

Would you have Him make you free, and follow at His call?
Would you know the peace that comes by giving all?
Would you have Him save you, so that you can never fall?
Let Him have His way with thee.


Would you in His kingdom find a place of constant rest?
Would you prove Him true in providential test?
Would you in His service labor always at your best?
Let Him have His way with thee.


This is a great hymn that reminds us how to have a successful life: let Him do what He wants to do with you.  His blood cleanses our hearts and makes us free.  His love fills our souls.  His power is what helps us to do what we ought to do.  We need to just let Him do His will in us and through us.

  1. Thank you for blessing us with this hymn today! Praying that He do His will in me today! God bless you!


  2. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. Great to see this little known gospel song online. I posted an article on it yesterday, contrasting Sinatra’s boast “I did it my way.” (Quite a difference from “HIS way with thee.”)


    • That is a great contrast, and one I hadn’t thought of! You have a great site and I enjoy reading some of the hymn stories. They really make us think!
