Follow Me

April 5th, 2012    |    1 Comment »

Follow Me — says my Lord

Your Footsteps will lead me To a path yet unknown And wherever You are Lord, I will Follow

To the highest of mountains And to the deepest of seas By my side, You will hold me

In my greatest of joys And saddest of sorrows By my side, You will comfort me

In struggles taken step by step And pains felt tear by tear By my side, You will wipe them dry for me

My actions: good, right and just And deeds: dreadful and wicked By my side, You will forgive me

My faith in You strong, fervent and unshaken And doubts: subtle, confusing and fierce By my side, You will reassure me

My prayers from the heart exclaimed to You Forgetful, pre-occupied and lazy, thankfulness remised By my side, You will always hear me

My weakness, illness and limitations, crosses indeed to bear Day by Day, Your path I take, should I dare By my side, You will guide me

My disappointments and discouragements daily they present Alone, weary and frail, my body weighed down By my side, You will uplift me

My goals and plans though they fall short Your will and way I try to emmulate By my side, You will shape me

My family: wife and children you have gifted Filled with joys and trials By my side, You will bless me

My life full of breath, energy and zeal And death: dark, empty and cold By my side, You will resurrect me

Your Footsteps will lead me To a path yet unknown And wherever You are Lord, I will Follow
