Like a child in the woods I lost my way,
Alone and afraid I stopped to pray.
“Father in Heaven,” I cried in my need,
“Please guide me home, I’ll go where you lead.”
Like a light in the forest he sent down His Son,
My heart became warm, a new hope had begun.
“Take my hand and I’ll lead you,” I heard Him say,
“Stay by my side for I know the way.”
Now a child in the woods all filled with delight,
The journey is joyous as I walk in His light.
No longer alone in a shadow filled land,
He leads me home as we walk hand in hand.
