the one about devotional

Today was one of the last devotionals of the semester at BYU. I love devotional! Devo is the perfect break in an often hectic week. It makes me sad that this is one of the last ones of the year. I had a hard realization that I have a limited number of devos left in my college career. Graduation looks very close all of a sudden. It's only a year away! I'm not sure how that happened.

This weeks devotional was a musical concert featuring BYU's audition choirs. It was such a beautiful concert! All of the songs were so uplifting. The Men's Chorus sang I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go. I love this song! I love how it expresses a desire to serve the Lord regardless of what is asked. We often think of this song in conjunction with missionary work, but I think it is much more applicable than that. I always try to do what Heavenly Father has asked of me, but listening to this song today gave me a renewed dedication. It expresses such an attitude of commitment; I want to always be like that.

Lyrics:

It may not be on the mountain height
Or over the stormy sea,
It may not be at the battle's front
My Lord will have need of me.
But if, by a still, small voice he calls
To paths that I do not know,
I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in thine:
I'll go where you want me to go.

(Chorus)
I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord,
Over mountain or plain or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord;
I'll be what you want me to be.

Perhaps today there are loving words
Which Jesus would have me speak;
There may be now in the paths of sin
Some wand'rer whom I should seek.
O Savior, if thou wilt be my guide,
Tho dark and rugged the way,
My voice shall echo the message sweet:
I'll say what you want me to say.

There's surely somewhere a lowly place
In earth's harvest fields so wide
Where I may labor through life's short day
For Jesus, the Crucified.
So trusting my all to thy tender care,
And knowing thou lovest me,
I'll do thy will with a heart sincere:
I'll be what you want me to be.
