Please Lead Me

Today we have a guest post from Michael Goddard II!

All that I’ve done, all that I am doing
Where is it taking me? I am indifferent.
All that God’s Word said, that I am reading.
Where is it leading me? I feel no different.

I’ve followed your steps, but it lead me nowhere;
I listened to your words, yet I still feel no reward.
Where are you, God? Where is your hand to lead?
I can’t stand falling; please lead me, O Lord.

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
So far from my cries of anguish?
My God I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
By night, but I find no rest.”

Please lead me, my Savior, Lord, and Friend.
I have nowhere to go, no one to free and lead.
I have no choice but to follow you to the end.
You sent me and gave me what I really need.

But I will remember what God’s word tells me:
“The LORD is my Shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths for his name sake.”

I have confidence and trust in the LORD my God;
He will lead me and refresh my soul in hard times.
He will guide me in right paths; I will be awed by him,
All because he has forgiven all of my horrible crimes.
Thank you, my guide and friend; I can sing your hymn.
Saying “Please lead me” shall remind me to read your lines.
