The Road Leads Not



The road leads not

Where I thought it would.

All my dreams lie broken,

Dreams I thought were good.


Where are you leading?

I can't see through the mist.

Confused and praying,

What point have we missed?


Won't you lead our hearts together,

Though I know not where?

Give us a single vision,

Oneness rare.


My heart breaks to give up

Visions past, hopes sweet.

I don't understand why,

But you'll direct these feet.


And wherever we are

Only let us stay with You.

I don't want to go alone,

But learn and grow through...


Whatever you may bring.

I fall on my face.

Father, You are holy.

Let me rest in your embrace.

Wow, this is awesome. Bethany...do you mind if I put this to music? This sums up a lot of the same feelings that Charlotte and I have been talking about lately. Wow...
