Lead On

Keep Calm and Read a Modern Psalm Based on Psalm 25:1-7:

To You, O Lord, I’ll lift my soul.
O God, I’ll trust in You!
You won’t let shame take its hard toll,
Nor foe take vict’ry true.
But as I sit here and I wait,
I feel confused and doubt
The way in which You’ll guide my fate—
It’s time that I found out!

Lead on, eternal, saving King—
Lead on and show Your ways!
Lead in Your truth; Your paths teach me.
For You, I’ll wait all day.

You’ve thought on loving loyalty
Each day since times of old.
Though from my youth I’ve been guilty,
In mercy You behold.
I know You’ve been so good to me.
But I don’t know what’s best.
From stress-filled choice can I be free?
Please put my faith to test!

Lead on, eternal, saving King—
Lead on and show Your ways!
Lead in Your truth; Your paths teach me.
For You, I’ll wait all day.

In life we all face tough choices
To go this way or that.
All round us there are loud voices
That say they know our path.
But there is only One Who’s Hand
Has guided history.
And let me say—He’s got a plan
To meet your every need.

So let Him lead, Your saving King!
Let Him show you His ways!
Down perfect paths your feet He’ll bring
Until the end of days.

-Matthew W., SC
