As My Soul Grows

by Darrell Brevard

There were those
That tried to lead me astray
Those that pushed me 
So far away
You guide me 
In your direction
Under your arms
Under your protection
Sometimes I felt like fighting
But you held me back again and again
I knew you would 
Take care of me until the end
I must confess
I looked the other way
Until you took away my rope
And made me find my own way
The wrong I did
Was a lesson to learn
Knowledge my heart desired
Knowledge my heart yearned
I wake up each day
At your command
Each day I realize
That I am apart of your plan
The test 
You place upon my soul
I seek the right answers
As my soul grows.
