like a baby reaches out for it’s mother’s embrace
like a flower blooms in spring
to feel the sun upon it’s face.
like a sailor needs a comp-ss to get back home again.
that’s how much i need the lord.
that’s how i rely on him
i rely on him every hour, every day
i rely on him every mile along the way
in all the year’s i’ve known the lord
and all the places that i’ve been.
i got all i ever needed when i relied on him
there were times of disappointment
when he gave me sweet relief.
there were days my steps grew weary
and i know he carried me.
and when my worries seem so heavy.
i can’t carry anymore.
i can feel the load get lighter
when i rely upon the lord.
in all the years i’ve known the lord
and all the places that i’ve been
i got all i ever needed
when i relied on him
i rely on him
