Lead Us On


About This Song

The CREW was about to leave Edmonton for a road trip to Canmore to do the music for a Catholic educators' conference. We had agreed to write a theme song for the conference but had not yet written one. Oops. While in the shower that morning, God placed a chorus in my head—both melody and words, based on John 10:1-10. I shared the chorus with the guys as soon as we were all in the van together and we proceeded to write the verses in the van on the way to Canmore. It was a productive trip.

Lead Us On has been used for slide shows, presentations, conferences, worship services, morning devotions and to help put babies and seniors to sleep. In John 10, Jesus tells us He is the Shepherd and His voice calls us on, leading us to an abundant life and keeping us safe from the evil one. Lord, you are the Shepherd, lead us on.
