Always before me

You go before me (Psalm 139:5; NLT).

1. Lord,
May your pattern
Be always before me,
Helping me face
All my tears.

2. Lord,
May your courage
Be always before me,
Helping me face
All my fears.

3. Lord,
May your patience
Be always before me,
Helping me face
All my pain.

4. Lord,
May your Spirit
Be always before me,
Lighting my way
With your flame.
