Gentle Savior

Contemporary Christian singer David Phelps, who is one of the finest singers on the planet, performs “Gentle Savior”. A truly inspired song and an inspiring performance. I don't usually go for Contemporary Christian music, but this guy is really remarkable as a vocalist. And the message is beautiful.

Where are the signs? Which way should I go?
I planned each step but now I don’t know.
Tomorrow is a chasm of uncertainty
But, I will go there, if You’ll go with me.

Gentle Savior, lead me on.
Let Your Spirit light the way.
Gentle Savior, lead me on.
Hold me close and keep me safe.
Lead me on, Gentle Savior.

Why can’t I walk away from my regrets
And why is forgiveness so hard to accept.
My past surrounds me like a house I can’t afford.
But You say, "Come with me; don’t live there anymore."


And when I reach the valley every soul must journey through
I’ll remember then how well You know the way,
I’ll put my hand in Your hand like a trusting child would do
And say…
