The Pledge of the Disciple (Direct the Way): the 2nd Song

A Poem By j. Glen pollard // 10/27/2014

(Verse 1)
Where should I go?
I am betwix two paths
Having the desire to pursue my LORD
It’s for the King I am fighting for

(Chorus)
Where You go I will follow
Trailing like a second shadow
As I read Your Word I will grow
I’ll stand by You all my days
Every day I will say
Direct the Way!

(Verse 2)
From my great confusion
(Jesus) You deliver out of peril
You put my feet on solid ground
Stray from You I will never

Where You go I will follow
Trailing like a second shadow
As I read Your Word I will grow
I’ll stand by You all my days
Every day I will say
Direct the Way!

(Bridge)
I won’t lean on my own knowledge
You are Holy, Messiah, I AM
Thru the valleys of the shadows
You can keep movin’ on I’ll will always follow (3xs)

Where You go I will follow
Trailing like a second shadow
As I read Your Word I will grow!
I’ll stand by You all my days
Every day I will say..
Direct the Way!

I like it! Every Christian's

I like it! Every Christian's heart should be singing it.
One thought I had was that when you say "Stray from you I will never" our hearts are deceitfully wicked: we do stray but God brings us back. But I know that when rhyming (especially when matching a tune) it is hard to say everything as fully as we like. So I am not saying for you to go back and change anything (by any means!), just adding a thought.
God bless you!
Keep up the good works.

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

Oh, umm, I have a question; what genre of music do you write? Just curious.

Pretty Much

Pretty much. I love the mixture folk and pop because of the vintage folk has and the upbeat style that pop has. And, well, since this is a Christian song, I make it Christian folk-pop! :D

Yes, I definitely love the

Yes, I definitely love the folk beat, and celtic too! To me they are sort of related. :) I play the fiddle and I sing, so celtic and folk (country too) and anything Christian for me! You can't go wrong with Christian anything. ;) Except for rock and rap. Definitely NOT a fan of those styles, although if my conscience would let me. I could enjoy them.
