Vs 1: I was hoping for a straight shot, a quick trip, direct route
Wasn't planning on a side road, no go, slow down
But God you're changing my direction.
I'll trust the leading of your hand and
Chorus: I'll follow your detour!
No matter where you lead
I'll follow your detour!
'Cause you know what's best for me
Vs 2: Sometimes I tend to wander, so far, from home.
Just to find myself, lost and broke down, all alone.
I'll trade the valleys that are down low.
For your leading on the high road
Bridge: Your ways are not like mine
My path, it bends and winds
I'll hold the unseen hand
Understand, it's all your plan
