Lord guide me

Down the river of life

Let a thousand

Rivulets and tributaries

Of your endless grace

Cleanse my soul

And lift me gently

From shoals of indecision

Self-doubt and temptation

Pilot me past

The swirling rapids

The jutting rocks

The whirlpools of this

Fast and reckless life

And let this mighty river

Flow into the sea

Of your everlasting love

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Inspired by the man I admire most in this world, Reverend Billy Graham.
