Traveler's Lantern
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


If deep in the night
You hear a voice calling
Lost and alone
Barely able to speak

With each weary step
Through cold shadows
they stumble
Blindly along
Frail, hopeless and weak

Chorus:

Won't you set out
a traveler's lantern
Just a small light
that they might see
To guide them back home
Before they wander
Into the dark billows
That crash on the sea

At dawn's rise you may find
The footprints of angels
Brought to fellowship there
By your mercy lamp's flame

Walking beside
The weary soul life's forgotten
Bringing comfort and love
And gently leading their way

Chorus
