My Father sees my faltering steps
As I walk from day to day.
Yet He sometimes lets me stumble
To make me stronger in some way.
And when I try to run ahead
Or try to walk alone,
I always lose my footing
And stumble on the stones.
But when I reach up for His hand
He pulls me to my feet.
My Father sees my faltering steps,
For He walks the path with me.

The Lord upholds all who fall,
And raises up all those who are
bowed down. (Psalm 145:14)
