Once again I realized I'd drifted off the path;
Once again I needed help but felt ashamed to ask.
Once again I put my pride aside and turned to You;
Once again You set me right and whispered what to do.
Once again I hope I won't forget the path You've shown,
But when I do, I trust Your patient love will guide me home.
