Come quickly Lord, I do not know where to go now
I have looked, I have searched
My eyes are slowly failing me
For I have been staring all day long
What direction do I take now Lord?
Where do I go from here?
Can you hear me dear Lord?
It’s me your baby, you know.
I stand at the crossroads…
I need direction, your own direction.
I have tried many a raod
But all seem to lead me further away from the truth.
Show me the way Lord
For your own way will lead me to you
For you are the way, the truth and the life I so desire.
Take my hand, I willingly surrender.
I’m tired of staring and hoping and getting tired,
I now turn my entire being to your direction
It was a dark day from the start
I walked down the winding street
Little knew I where I was headed
All I know, I needed a change.
It was a long and painful journey
Weary and worn and weak I was
Thirsting and hungering from my long long search
For peace and joy and who knows what.
It was a great encounter
A man I once heard could help my lot
Though I thought him cruel and crooked
Like many a man I’ve met in my life.
They say He is a lowly Carpenter
But I find Him too gentle of touch to be
They say He came from little Nazareth
But I think Him too great there to belong
For all I know, He wiped my tears away
And washed me clean of all my slime
He made me think I ought to live
To make His mercies known to all
