This song came from first listening to Jeremiah Daly’s “At Last” and incorporates one of his stanzas as well as the general theme and flow of an outcry.  His stanza is demonstrated by its being in italics.  Also, a capital “We” includes God and I; whereas a lowercase “we” is my submission before Lord seeking where, in my relationship with Stephen, we are heading.  Because of this distinction, you will find more lowercase letters than are grammatically correct.  Please look past the grammar to the heart.  This is a song developed over the course of a brutal day requiring intensity in prayer before recognizing the replenishing of spirit as I sit before the Lord and in our togetherness.

it’s as if I lost my way;

I was surefooted, but now I question

nearly everything.

it all seems so uncertain;

and yet I believe.

so Lord,

where do I go from here?

where do I go from here?

where do I go from here?

where do I go from here?

 

my hope is that

I can learn to be content right where I’m at

time will tell

and I’ll keep searching for answers inside myself

where do I go from here?

where do I go from here?

where do I go from here?

where do I go from here?

 

lead and I shall follow

please pave the way, I know

You to be with me always

trusting You stand with me now

trusting You stand with me now

so I ask once more:

where shall We go from here?

where shall We go from here?

where shall We go from here?

O Lord, where shall We go?

 

be still, I shall.

but I don’t want to sit;

when you are clearly walking with me now.

Lord, where are We going now?

O Lord, where are We going?

 

where do we go from here?

where do we go from here?

Lord, guide us,

help us,

show us, You are here.

where will we go with You?

Lord, show us

we beg You.

 

thunders rolling, cold war

he is not my enemy nor am I his

weapons down

fighting for each other

white flags waving

unto You we surrender

 

storms raging,

we’re not flailing

no, Lord

You say be still,

be calm,

have courage,

walk with bravity

 

You, Lord, are here

and so we say: thank You

Mighty King,

we bow down

with You, we shall rise

continue

we walk with

walking with one another

so Lord, where shall we go?

where shall we go?

where shall we go?

 

Seeker of lost souls

we are found not lost

with You we shall know

this is a trusted path

with You we shall know

this is a trusted path

 

With dignity, integrity

we have courage,

walking hand in hand.

it’s as if a triangle;

us under You.

so as we look to You, we ask:

where shall we go from here?

where shall we go from here?

where shall we go?

we go with You.

we go with You.

surrendered.
