Title: It Leads Us Home to Him
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: trust, faith, revelation

1.
Though I cannot see far ahead
I step into the dark,
And though this unknown way I dread,
Still faithful I embark.

The Lord can see the shadowed way,
When mortal eyes are dim.
And if we on the pathway stay
It leads us home to Him.

2.
Though I cannot see through the cloud
That veils my memory,
I press on still, despite the shroud,
With hope someday I’ll see.

The Lord can see the shadowed way,
When mortal eyes are dim.
And if we on the pathway stay
It leads us home to Him.

3.
Though I cannot see to the end,
I know I will arrive.
My Savior will my steps attend,
And see that I survive.

The Lord can see the shadowed way,
When mortal eyes are dim.
And if we on the pathway stay
It leads us home to Him.

Hate cannot drive hate out,
Only love can do so.

Only light makes it go.

But righteousness prevails.
And fear will never win,
When our faith stirs the sails.

Hymn Text: When Questions in my Soul Arise

Date: August 15th, 2017
Title: When Questions in My Soul Arise
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: the Spirit, prayer

1.
When questions in my soul arise,
I know where I must turn.
When I seek a heavenly prize,
I know how I can learn.

I need only to ask and seek,
To knock on heaven’s door.
He’ll open and with me will speak,
The answer I’ve yearned for.

2.
When deep questions confound my mind,
There is no other source.
For without God’s voice I am blind
And constantly off course.

I pierce through the shadows with pray’r,
And bask in given light.
Though darkness arise everywhere,
I’m saved through holy might.

3.
When vital questions cannot wait,
I kneel before God’s throne.
The hour never grows too late.
I am not left alone.

The Spirit gives me clarity
I find no other way.
When I pray with sincerity
That he will come and stay.

The power of the Lord is yours
If only you will ask.

Each fainting heart its might revives,
Each humble pray’r is blessed.

When He would have us know.

The power of the Lord can give,
You strength beyond your own.
If you will the commandments live
You will not fend alone.
