Lead Me

This song has meant much to me over the past couple of years as I’ve struggled to lead my own family, giving up chasing dreams to care for them.

I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames, I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling, but on the inside
Oh, I can hear her saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They’re just children from the outside
I’m working hard, I tell myself they’ll be fine
They’re independent, but on the inside
Oh, I can hear them saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I’m called to be
Oh Father, show me the way To lead them
Won’t You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can’t
Don’t want to leave them hungry for love
Chasing things that I could give up
I’ll show them I’m willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home

Lead me ’cause I can’t do this alone
Father, lead me ’cause I can’t do this alone

  1. Good night friends! Sleep well and sweet dreams, and smiles when you’re sleeping
    We hear tomorrow night as beautiful and quiet!

  2. WONDERFUL post…..being a mom an I too gave up my life to ensure my family’s growth…awe the life of a mother.

    • Boy that’s the truth. My husband left when my girls were 13 months. I wanted to stay home with them, instead I got to work 3 jobs. God was with us and they turned out wonderfully. Redemption has come…I’m now a stay at home grandma and loving it.
