My Lord God,

I have no idea where I`m going

I do not see the road ahead of me

I cannot know for certain where it will end.

Nor do I really know myself,

and the fact that I think

I`m following your will

does not mean

that I´m actually doing so.


But I believe that the desire to please you

does in fact please you.

And I hope I have that desire

in all that I´m doing.

I hope that I will never do anything

apart from that desire.

And I know that if I do this,

you will lead me by the right road

though I may know nothing about it.


There fore will I trust you allways

though I may seem to be lost

and in the shadow of death.

I will fear not, for you are ever with me

and you will never leave me

to face my perils alone.
