One Set of Footprints

One night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. And across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One set belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. And I noticed that many times along the path of life, there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me so I questioned the Lord about it.

One set of footprints in the sand
Lord, you promised me You’d hold my hand
Tell my why in the troubled time
I looked back and only find
One set of footprints in the sand

Lord, You said that once I decided to follow you, You would walk with me all the way. But I've noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there’s only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why in times when I needed you most You should leave me. And the Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you. And I would never, never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints in the sand, it was then that I was carrying you.

One set of footprints in the sand
Oh yes, at last I understand
Through every storm He carried me
now I praise the Lord each time I see
One set of footprints in the sand
One set of footprints in the sand
