Solitude Song (Follow Me)

In his search for God’s will, Tom Booth found encouragement in the words of Thomas Merton, an American Trappist monk whose life of contemplation inspired the world. “Solitude Song” is a prayerful heart to heart dialogue between seeker and God.

I don’t know where I’m goin’.
The road ahead is hard to see.
I cannot know for certain
where you’re leading me.

My own heart is a mystery
and I’m unsure of your will,
though my desire to please you
surely pleases still.

Follow me.
Follow me.
Follow me.
Yes, follow me.

Lord, I know if I follow,
you will lead me from fear.
So I will trust you always,
knowing you are near.
