Lights My Ways-- G Clair

Was thinking 'bout my life and how it's gonna be
I left it up to God, He put it back on me
went lookin' for direction but I'm just the average Jane
don't like all these decisions, the unknown mystifies my brain.

I pondered over all the things I've done before
thought I could walk on water, knocked on every door
and nothing much was scary then and nothing much was out of place
Well I walked by faith. and left the rest to grace.

When I said that I would follow, wasn't hard to do~
I stayed away from magic, idols, and taboo
and doing the right thing, the only thing that mattered
You planted the Word, and by the wind those seeds were scattered.

Turned my back on old religion, not the way for me
well you can have your catachism and your rosary
never being sure your gonna make it to the promised land,
God showed how much He loved us when he took the nails in his hand.

You raised me out of darkness way before I'm dead
left the puzzle all undone, and lit the way instead
I'm thinking again, but far much higher this time
It's not my will but yours that I am hoping to find.

I've got some time to spend and time is on my hands
I wanna do your will and follow your commands
I know it's not by might, and not by useless power
But by your spirit I will serve to my last hour.

And as I'm on my way, just doing what I do
I'm gonna try my best and kiss it all to you
Well I make mistakes and I've seen some wicked days
but out of every darkness, your faithful love, it lights my ways.
