  • Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
    And a light unto my path
    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
    And a light unto my path

    When I feel afraid,
    And think I've lost my way
    Still, you're there right beside me
    Nothing will I fear
    As long as you are near
    Please be near me to the end

    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
    And a light unto my path
    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
    And a light unto my path

    I will not forget
    Your love for me and yet
    My heart forever is wandering
    Jesus by my guide
    And hold me to your side
    And I will love you to the end

    Nothing will I fear
    As long as you are near
    Please be near me to the end

    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
    And a light unto my path
    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
    And a light unto my path
    And a light unto my path
    You're the light unto my path Writer/s: Amy Lee Grant, Michael Whitaker Smith

  • Lynda Vuurman from Hot Springs Village, ArkansasThank you. You have a beautiful voice. Many Blessings
  • Rebekah from Monroe , NcMike, in this case you are wrong. Although Amy does many of Michael Card's songs, including El Shaddai, "Thy Word" is correctly attributed in the article to Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant. You will see their names accompanying the song in hymbooks and other publications.
  • Mike from Norwalk, CtI could be wrong but I think Michael Card wrote this song.
