Take care in these dangerous times and reach out to the ones you love


Your Way

By Larry Holder and Elton Smith

CCLI Number: 3540318

We were all devastated by the events of September 11. A few mornings later, I felt compelled to write a song of comfort to all believers and to our nation. I emailed the lyrics to Elton, who came up with the wonderful melody and MIDI you are hearing. May this song be one of blessing and comfort to all who, while confused about these world events, retain the confidence that our Lord is still in control. May we now, more than ever, turn to Him for comfort and strength. - Larry, October 13, 2001

(Verse 1)
Lord, please bring us grace to face the things
We cannot understand.
The mysteries surround us
In this world of fallen man.
All along this life-long journey
We're dependent on Your love,
The mercy and the grace that
Comes from You alone, above...

Be our comfort, be our shield.
Be our strength, Lord, as we yield
All our lives, Lord, every day
As Your Spirit draws us on
Out of night into the dawn
From the storm into the calm
Of Your Way.

(Verse 2)
We cast aside the petty things.
We know they matter least of all,
And reach out for Your loving arms
As on Your Name we call.
Searching for the Truth
That You have given to us in Your Word.
We gather here to praise You, now,
For You alone are Lord...

(Repeat Chorus)
Be our comfort, be our shield.
Be our strength, Lord, as we yield
All our lives, Lord, every day
As Your Spirit draws us on
Out of night into the dawn,
From the storm into the calm
Of Your Way,
Of Your Way,
Of Your Way.
