Footprints In The Sand Lyrics

Over all my burdens and through all my fears
Jesus carries me
Through all my trials and through all my tears
Jesus carries me.

One night a man had a dream
And he dreamed he was walking with the Lord
A crossed the sky flashed scenes from his life
For each scene he noted two sets of footprints in the sand
One belonged to him the other to the Lord
When the last scene of his life flashed before him
He looked back at the footprints in the sand
And noticed that many times along the path of his life
There was only one set of footprints
He also noticed that this seemed to happen
At the very lowest and sadist times in his life
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it
Lord you said that once I decided to follow you
You would walk with me all the way but I have noticed
That in the most troublesome times in my life
There are only one set of foot prints
I don't understand why when I needed you the most
You would leave me

The Lord replied, ''Oh, my precious, precious child
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering
When you see only one set of foot prints.
I did not leave you, it was then that I carried you.''

Over all my burdens and through all my fears
Jesus carries me
Through all my trials and through all my fears
Jesus carries me.

Oh, he carries me across
The burning sand, over water deep and wide
He gently takes me by the hand
And carries me to the other side.

Oh, my Jesus carries me...
