When the Going Gets Tough

I’LL GO FIRST

I’ll go first; I’m not afraid.
Follow me! Stay close behind.
Gather up the prayers you’ve prayed.
Our path is sure, though ill-defined.

Follow me! Stay close behind.
I’ll light the way, so you may see
Our path is sure. Though ill-defined,
It leads us where we long to be.

I’ll light the way, so you may see
This pathway through the growing night.
It leads us where we long to be
As dawn returns with welcome light.

This pathway through the growing night
Is frightening, if you walk alone.
As dawn returns with welcome light,
You’ll learn what I have always known.

It’s frightening. If you walk alone,
Gather up the prayers you’ve prayed.
You’ll learn what I have always known.
I’ll go first; I’m not afraid.
