Jesus is with me every hour, every day,
Guiding me, leading me, showing the way.
Since I decdied to believe on his name,
Nothing in life has ever been the same.
The addictions I suffered are soothed by his hand
My anguish of heart drifted off like fine sand.
I live every moment with guidance from above;
Every part of my heart is squeezed full of God's love.
Once all was too hard and I despaired of all peace,
But when I took His offer all despair was released.
No problem today cannot be overcome;
My job is to pray; God gets the rest done.
What glorious relief to be under God's shield
Why not, my dear friend, won't you also yield?
Give up your fight to keep walking alone;
Submit to your Savior; He'll welcome you home.
My Lord, God, I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that
I think that I am following your will does not
mean that I am actually doing so.
But I believe that the desire to please you
does in fact please you, and I hope that
I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this you will lead me by
the right road though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore will I trust you always though I may
seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.
I will not fear, for you are ever with me,
and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
