"FOOTPRINTS"

I dreamed that I was walking along the sands of time;
It seemed I saw my whole life flash before my eyes.
The One Who walked beside me gently led me by the hand;
Together we walked onwards-left our footprints in the sand.

And looking back, it seemed in times of heartbreak and despair,
I only saw a single set of footprints walking there.
When I questioned Him beside me, "Were You really always near?"
The answer that He gave me still echoes in my ear.

Chorus 1
Footprints in the sand, walking side by side,
Walking on forever with Jesus as my guide.
All the time I thought I walked alone, but His voice so kind and true
Said, "That single line of footprints was when I carried you."

Through every time of disappointment, every time of lonely tears,
There's one thing ever constant, never changing through the years:
There's a love that's so much stronger than our weary mortal frames;
There's a love that sees our weakness and loves us still the same.

And even though the storms may blow across that windswept sand,
And even when our trials may seem so hard to understand,
There's a voice that whispers softly with a promise all sublime,
"I am with you always until the end of time."

Chorus 2
Footprints in the sand, walking side by side,
Walking on forever with Jesus as my guide.
So many times I thought I walked alone, but His voice so kind and true
Said, "That single line of footprints was when I carried you."

Chorus 3
Footprints in the sand, walking side by side,
Walking on forever with Jesus as my guide.
So many times I thought I walked alone, but His voice so kind and true
Said, "That single line of footprints was when I carried you."

(D)-(Asus2/C#)-(Bm7)-(Dmaj7/A)-(G)-(Dsus2/F#)-(Em7)-(A7sus4)
(D)-(Am)-(Gadd9)-(Gmadd9)

I (D)dreamed that I was walking a(Dmaj7)long the sands of time;
It (Em7)seemed I saw my whole life (Gm6/E)flash before my eyes.
The (D)One Who walked beside me gently (Dmaj7)led me by the hand;
To(Em7)gether we walked onwards-left our (Gm6)footprints in the sand.(F#/A#)

And (Bm7)looking back, it (Bm7/A)seemed in times of (Gmaj7)heartbreak and de(F#)spair,
I (Bm7)only saw a (Bm7/A)single set of (Gmaj7)footprints walking (Bsus4)there.(B)
When I (Em7)questioned Him be(Asus2/C#)side me, "Were You (F#m7)really always (Bm7)near?"
The (Csus2)answer that He gave me still (G)echoes in my (G/A)ear.(A)

Chorus 1
(D)Footprints in the sand, (F#m7)walking side by side,
(G)Walking on for(D/F#)ever with (Em)Jesus as my (G/A)guide.(A)
All the (G)time I thought I (D/F#)walked alone, but His (F#/A#)voice so kind and (Bm)true
Said, "That (Csus2)single line of footprints (Gsus2/B)was (A7sus4)when I (A)carried (D)you."

(Am7)-(G)-(Gm6)

Through every (D)time of disappointment, every (Dmaj7)time of lonely tears,
There's (Em7)one thing ever constant, never (Gm6/E)changing through the years:
There's a (D)love that's so much stronger than our (F#m7)weary mortal frames;
There's a (Em7)love that sees our weakness and (Gm6)loves us still the same.(F#/A#)

And (Bm7)even though the (Bm7/A)storms may blow a(Gmaj7)cross that windswept (F#)sand,
And (Bm7)even when our (Bm7/A)trials may seem so (Gmaj7)hard to under(Bsus4)stand,(B)
There's a (Em7)voice that whispers (A)softly with a (F#m7)promise all sub(Bm)lime,
(Csus2)"I am with you always un(Gsus2)til the end of (G/A)time."

Chorus 2
(D)Footprints in the sand, (F#m7)walking side by side,
(G)Walking on for(D/F#)ever with (Em7)Jesus as my (G/A)guide.(A)
So many (G)times I thought I (D/F#)walked alone, but His (F#/A#)voice so kind and (Bm)true
Said, "That (C)single line of footprints (G)was (A7sus4)when I carried (D)you."(B)

Chorus 3
(E)Footprints in the sand, (G#m7)walking side by side,
(A)Walking on for(E/G#)ever with (F#m7)Jesus as my (A/B)guide.(B)
So many (A)times I thought I (E/G#)walked alone, but His (G#/C)voice so kind and (C#m)true
Said, "That (D)single line of footprints (Asus2)was (A/B)when I carried (E)you."

(Bm7)-(A)-(Am)-(E)
