Following Him

Hidden in the cleft of the rock
Covered with His hand
There shrouded in a misty cloud
God was passing by.

He said, “Will you follow me”
“Yes Lord let me go with you” I cried,
As he moved away
And then He was gone

Lord let me not be my own interpreter
The Words that you speak that touch my soul
Let me not interpret them presumptuously
But just wait patiently for you

The words you speak are spirit and life
But my interpretations are flesh and blood
Unless You reveal yourself who can know?
Unless You speak who can hear?

If I interpret Your revelation to me
If I think I know your will for my life
Then I have stopped following
And become set on the rails of presumption

If I say "I know where you are leading"
And push ahead of You
I know I will veer away from the path
Because I will hear You behind me saying “Follow me”

Lord just lead me where you will
I will not complain though the way be difficult
Though the path draws blood
If you go before me I will not fear.

Let me look back and understand your will
Let me see what your interpretation was
Let me marvel at where you have led me
And praise you the God of all Grace.
