Bob Forbes

Recording by Bob Forbes

mp3 / wma
Tryin' to fight off the tears
Lost the way over the years
Need a chance for a new start
To lift my soul, renew my heart

Help break this chain of sorrow
Lead us to a new tomorrow
Your healing touch indeed
It changes lives in need

(Chorus)
Can You change my heart?
Holy Father change my mind
Guide me by Your grace
As You lead, from this place

We will follow Your light
To help end this dark night
Lead us from our mourning
Into Your new found glory

We will reach out and take Your hand
This will help us to understand
Why there's sorrow to reach tomorrow
To follow Your footprints in the sand

Help break this chain of sorrow
Lead us to a new tomorrow
Your healing touch indeed
It changes lives in need

(Repeat Chorus)
Can You change my heart?
Holy Father change my mind
Guide me by Your grace
As You lead, from this place

We will follow Your light
To help end this dark night
Lead us from our mourning
Into Your new found glory

Follow, follow, follow Your footprints

Hi I'm Ped from the Philippines. When I played your song I can't prevent my tears but to fall. As I was typing this I am actually crying. I'm a musician and I broke my finger right thumb in an accident and I was really filled with sorrow. Your song gave me hope that my finger be well again by the Grace of God. Thank you Mr. Bob Forbes and Mr. Don Shafer. May God give you long life to create more praise songs.

Patricia we're sorry about your loss. But you're back on the right track. It is one of my favorite poems also. Don and Bob
2010-04-27
I've been kind of lost since my husband of 44 years passed away in February 2010. I've been taking some wrong paths to find comfort and they have led me away from God. This song has been an inspiration and I will listen to it often to remind me to "Follow His Footprints In the Sand". Footprints in the sand was one of my mother's favorite poems and mine too. Thankyou for making this song available.

WOW! Everyone is asleep so I couldn't play the music only read it. I just finished the devotion when Paul and Silas were imprisoned and how they sang songs of praise. I googled songs of praise and your site came up. Our family is in a very dark hour and the words were the praise we needed to give God who has and will sustain us. He will break this chain of sorrow and Lead us to a new tomorrow!!!

2008-06-26
I came by this song 'by accident' and I am really touched by it! This is exactly how I am feeling today. I believe these are the kind of songs the church needs, instead of more and more 'worship'. I think this is the kind of worship that the Lord desires: an open heart willing to change and be able to serve Him!
