1 Two sets of footprints in the sand

remind me of life's journey.

I walk with God; He gently leads.

His fatherhood surrounds me.

2 But in the lowest, saddest times

the footprints are but one set.

Could such a loving Father

leave my need of comfort unmet?

3 He promised he would walk with me

when I began to follow.

How could he let me walk alone

in times of greatest sorrow?

4 “My precious child” the Master said,

“When you felt worn and broken

One footprint only was in view

because I carried you then.”
