God Is Holding My Hand

I have been down this road before
after the closing of a door. but never have I
ever had to walk alone.
Though the day may break my heart
and the night time may leave me standing
in another day alone; I have never awakened to a day
that God wasn't abiding with me; that my
house wasn't filled with faith, and
God didn't make me a way.

For years God reached out his hands to me
Then one day his hand touched mine;
and he whispered " Come, my child,
I am here now. I will lead the way."

Since then I have left things in God's hands.
He has never carried me down a path that he
did not for me pave the way.

Thank you God, for the company on my journey;
Thank you for filling my world with love,
Mercy and understanding, as I stumble after you.

For years God reached out his hands to me
then one day his hand touched mine; and
he whispered " Come, my child, I am here now.
I will lead the way."
Though everyone may desert me at the crossing
Of the roads; the roads of life be filled with
troubles and sorrows; and all hope seemingly gone,
I know deep down, I never have to travel alone.
