Mickey Newbury - "Lead On" lyrics

Jesus do you still know me
Well here I stand ragged and worn
Like an orphan left to wander
Like a sailor lost in a storm

Lead on
Oh your words are like a fire
Although my body may be cold
If I reached out in time and touched eternity
I would find no other fire to warm my soul

Yes Jesus if I could save me
I would have done so long ago
Will I become what I know I should try to be
Or another man growin' old and all alone

Lead on I will follow
Although my wayward ship be tossed and rolled
I will find no shelter from this troubled sea
And theres no other place on earth to save my soul
Lead on
