You Lead Me Through

You Lead Me Through     

I open my eyes to take on the day
You’re my first thought
‘cause I can’t face the day without You
What do You have in store for today?
I’ll follow you  Each and every step of the way

Pillar of cloud by day
Pillar of fire by night
You lead me through
The darkness and the wilderness of my life

I am amazed at how You see me
I am just dust
But Your plan of salvation includes me
You sent Your Son to die for me
I owe my life  So I try every day to follow

Wherever You go, I go
Wherever You stay, I stay
You lead me through
The mountains and the valleys of my life

You were there the day I was born
Before my first breath
You knew everything about me
You gave me life and now it’s my job
To praise every day  And to give all the glory to You

Pillar of cloud by day  Pillar of fire by night
You lead me through The darkness and the wilderness of my life

I close my eyes at the end of the day
You’re my last thought
‘cause You’ve been right beside me all day
And as I drift off to sleep
You let me know  You are standing guard over me

Wherever You go, I go
Wherever You stay, I stay
You lead me through
The mountains and the valleys of my life

Background

I wanted to write a song capturing how God is there from the time I wake up till I go to sleep.  I grew up with the old testament symbols of God like: pillar of cloud by day, pillar of fire by night.  I know He leads us through symbolic places like darkness, wilderness, mountains and valleys.  Somehow that’s comforting.
