What is the meaning of "If the way Thou choosest, Lead to pain and loss"? How would you put it in modern English?
It is a verse from Margaret E. Barber's song "The Path I Travel." The whole context is:
If the path I travel Lead me to the Cross,
If the way Thou choosest, Lead to pain and loss,
Let the compensation Daily, hourly, be
Shadowless communion, Blessed Lord with Thee.
