And Yet

And yet,
This freedom to think
To choose the paths before us
Left - Straight - Right

Such confusion pervades me
Overpowering what I want
Suggesting defeat
I press on to life

My own life, future
What may have been
What is to be

It will come to pass
The Will of the Lord
To provide for me
To raise me right

For in this confusion
This confusion of life
We press on
Just me and my Lord

I will count on Him
To see me through
To see the other side
To have peace one day

My friends and family
Subject to His Will
His Ways
His Presence in me

For life goes on
And when I fall
And can't get up
He sets me on the path again
