03. Lead Me

Best of Sanctus Real
by Sanctus Real



 

I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames, I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling, but on the inside, oh, I can hear her saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I canít
Donít leave me hungry for love, chasing dreams
But what about us
Show me youíre willing to fight
That Iím still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
Theyíre just children from the outside
Iím working hard, I tell myself, ďTheyíll be fine; theyíre independentĒ
But on the inside, oh, I can hear them saying

So Father, give me the strength to be everything Iím called to be
Oh, Father, show me the way to lead them / Wonít You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they canít
Donít want to leave them hungry for love
Chasing things that I could give up
Iíll show them Iím willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this a home
Lead me, Ďcause I canít do this alone
Father, lead me, Ďcause I canít do this alone

Behind the Song:
"Marriage and parenthood are such astonishing and comprehensive parts of life. They stretch us to our extreme limitsÖand then a little further. They teach us to love in ways we previously didnít know existed, and working through the most confounding frustrations lead to the most enlivening rewards. Can we truly understand the voice of the Father or the relationship of Christ with his bride without these wonderful inventions of commitment? Our lead singer Matt wrote the basics of this song in response to the convicting words of his wife, Sarah, as she called him to the task of being a better spiritual leader for their family. With prayer and repentance, he listened. Matt wrote this song out of a fresh revelation that it requires a daily habit of seeking God in order to understand and live out this ebb and flow of leading with humility and being led in obedience." - Sanctus Real
