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 can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love, chasing dreams
But what about us
Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m 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
They’re just children from the outside
I’m working hard, I tell myself, “They’ll be fine; they’re independent”
But on the inside, oh, I can hear them saying

So Father, give me the strength to be everything I’m called to be
Oh, Father, show me the way to lead them / Won’t You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can’t
Don’t want to leave them hungry for love
Chasing things that I could give up
I’ll show them I’m willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this a home
Lead me, ‘cause I can’t do this alone
Father, lead me, ‘cause I can’t do this alone

Behind the Song:
"Marriage and parenthood are such astonishing and comprehensive parts of life. They stretch us to our extreme limits…and then a little further. They teach us to love in ways we previously didn’t 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
