Daily Mundane #23 - Thursday Commute

Thursday lyric time!  

There are sooo many songs composed from across all decades, generations and genres that I love...
That truly speak to me...
That inspire me.

Then there are the songs that, in addition to loving them, I feel are really important.  
Important philosophies to embrace and absorb.
"Lead Me" by "Sanctus Real is one of these songs.
Ever since I heard this song months and months ago, it has planted itself firmly in my heart, the importance of the lyrics in our modern 21st century families beyond comprehension.  
It's a song that parents and spouses across the board could benefit from embracing.
But, even moreso, husbands and dads everywhere, I think, could understand and internalize.
There is a link attached to the title below.  
Give it a listen and if you feel  the way I do, I encourage you to share it - especially with the important men in your lives.

Love, love, love it!!

Lead Me


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, 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, 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, I can hear them saying

"Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, 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."

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I am 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 our home
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

Father, lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone


{Thanks for reading...and listening!}
