Each Time We Go A Stray

I know He'll guide our feet
I know He'll light our way
I know He'll gently lead us back
Each time we go a stray

There's time in life we stumble
We falter and we fail
We feel that no one understands
We feel that no one cares

We start to go our own way
We question God and cry
We wonder what's the point of life
Why should we even try

We know we shouldn't look at
The places from our past
But it's right there in Jesus hands
Our burdens we should cast

I know He'll guide our feet
I know He'll light our way
I know He'll gently lead us back
Each time we go a stray

He tells us in His Holy Word
He's always by our side
He'll never leave us lonely
But with us will abide

If only we'll rely on Him
Through each and every day
We'll be surrounded by his love
And hear Him gently say

My child, I'll guide your feet
And I will light your way
I'll gently lead you back to Me
Each time you go a stray

    Inspired! A few of my pieces have religious overtones too.
