[Verse 1]
G              G/C            G       
I asked the Lord that I might grow 
             Em  C          D
In faith and love and ev’ry grace, 
              G             Em   C
Might more of His salvation know, 
              Dsus D        G
And seek more earnestly His face. 

[Verse 2]
G               G/C            G
‘Twas He who taught me thus to pray, 
          Em  C               D
And He, I trust, has answered prayer,
           G              Em   C
But it has been in such a way 
          Dsus D        G
As almost drove me to despair. 

[Verse 3]
G             G/C           G
I hoped that in some favored hour 
             Em  C       D
At once He’d answer my request 
            G                   Em   C
And, by His love’s constraining pow’r, 
          Dsus D           G
Subdue my sins and give me rest. 

[Verse 4]
G             G/C           G
Instead of this, He made me feel 
           Em  C       D
The hidden evils of my heart 
            G               Em   C
And let the angry pow’rs of hell 
           Dsus D        G
Assault my soul in ev’ry part. 

[Verse 5]
G              G/C            G
Yea, more with His own hand He seemed 
          Em  C        D
Intent to aggravate my woe, 
                G              Em   C
Crossed all the fair designs I schemed, 
           Dsus D            G
Humbled my heart and laid me low.

[Verse 6]
G              G/C                G
 “Lord, why is this,” I trembling cried; 
              Em C            D
“Wilt Thou pursue Thy worm to death?” 
              G                Em   C
“’Tis in this way,” the Lord replied, 
          Dsus D               G
“I answer prayer for grace and faith.” 

[Verse 7]
G             G/C        G
“These inward trials I employ 
              Em  C             D
From self and pride to set thee free 
              G                  Em  C
And break thy schemes of earthly joy 
                 Dsus D          G
That thou may’st find thy all in Me.”
