Every Step Of The Way
Written by Matthew West

Early morning rise n' shine
I don't wanna wake up this time
But I open up my eyes
To greet the day
Stretch my arms
And I scratch my head
Leave the comfort of my cozy bed
Wish I was movin' in reverse instead
But here I go again
Barely time for the front page news
A cup of coffee and I tie my shoes
Racin' the clock but I always lose
Here I go again

Feels like I'm missing something
I've taken care of all but one thing

Gotta ask my Lord
Ask my Savior
Keep an eye on my behavior
I need His light in me to shine
Every step of the way
Gotta ask my Comfort, my Shelter
Help me play the hand I'm dealt
And let His light within me shine
Every step of the way

Every day I go through the motions
I entertain this crazy notion
That I can swim this life's great ocean
All alone
I look around, no land in sight
The raging current
Too much to fight
Times are hard and money's tight
And here I go again

I know He's always near me
And I know He's always gonna hear me

Ask my Lord
Ask my Savior
Keep an eye on my behavior
I need His light in me to shine
Every step of the way
Gotta ask my Comfort, my Shelter
Help me play the hand I'm dealt
And let His light within me shine
Every step of the way

Gotta ask my Lord
Ask my Savior
Keep an eye on my behavior
I need His light in me to shine
Every step of the way
Gotta ask my Comfort, my Shelter
Help me play the hand I'm dealt
And let His light within me shine
Every step of the way
Every step of the way

Early morning, rise n' shine
I don't wanna wake up this time
But I open up my eyes
To greet the day
