What I'd like to have, Lord,
is a spiritual GPS to map a path for my life
where all the roads are level and smooth...
Of bumps and potholes I've had enough!
Something newly paved, firm and smooth,
would be a welcome change...
Of dark valleys and steep hills I've had my fill:
a level highway would make my day -
and help me make my way to you...
is so often rough and rocky, with twists and turns
and uphill climbs that seem to never end?
Why is the way of your word and will
so often the hardest road to walk
while other paths, to right and left,
seem shorter and easier to take?
If I've made a wrong turn, Lord,
show me the way I should have gone:
let your word be a map and your wisdom a compass
to show me the right direction...
And if, indeed, I'm on the right path:
show me your face and take my hand
and let your good spirit guide me along the way...
I trust you never mislead me:
that for reasons known to you alone
the path I'm on is the path that's mine
and you're always by my side..
When short-cuts beckon to ways
that lead away from you,
strengthen my resolve to follow you,
to never walk alone...
When I tire of the path I'm on
and can't see where it leads;
when I'm not sure where it all began
or how I got this far;
when I wonder if the journey's worth the pain:
give me breath to take another step
and a glimpse of where I'm going;
let me see you've brought me safe thus far
and will bring me safely home...
Be with me, Lord, along the way
as you're with me now in prayer,
for you're my Lord, my only God
and I want to do your will...
I only want to walk the way
that leads to you, my God...
