PLEASE LEAD THE WAY

We will speak and live
As leaders in our world,
To bring love instead of hatred;
Peace to the nations;
Hope and joy that conquer despair.
As you call us, we will obey;
Lord Jesus, please lead the way.

 

We will live each day
As your true witnesses,
To bring light instead of darkness;
News of salvation;
Your healing and deliverance.
As you call us, we will obey;
Lord Jesus, please lead the way.

 

We will show your love,
To win the hearts of all;
Break the bonds of fear and dread;
Set the captives free;
Reflect your glorious presence.
As you call us, we will obey;
Lord Jesus, please lead the way.

 

As we follow you,
We will invite others
To enter into your kingdom;
To be born again;
Baptized and filled with your Spirit.
As you call us, we will obey;
Lord Jesus, please lead the way.

 

Then as we come home,
To our place in Heaven,
We will rejoice to be with you;
Forever at peace;
Ever praising and worshipping.
As you call us, we will obey;
Lord Jesus, please lead the way.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
