Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Help me love when I’m hated
Spread joy unabated
Oh Show me Thy ways, O Lord

Jesus was more than just a man from Galilee
Christ the Son of God, He died on Calvary
They spat on (“scourged him”), mocked him, and on Him they lied
Yet Jesus loved them, forgive them He cried

Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Help me love when I’m hated
Spread joy unabated
Oh Show me Thy ways, O Lord

Jesus was crucified upon the Cross for me
He bore such pain, He was in such agony
I never suffered such burdens as Him
Yet, when I am weary, I cried earnestly

Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Show me Thy ways, O Lord
Help me love when I’m hated
Spread joy unabated
Oh Show me Thy ways, O Lord

1 Peter 2:21-24

21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for [e]us, leaving [f]us an example, that you should follow His steps: 22 “Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;

23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
