Andrew Peterson - You'll Find Your Way Lyrics




When I look at you, boy
I can see the road that lies ahead
I can see the love and the sorrow

Bright fields of joy
Dark nights awake in a stormy bed
I want to go with you, but I can't follow

So keep to the old roads
Keep to the old roads
And you'll find your way

Your first kiss, your first crush
The first time you know you're not enough
The first time there's no one there to hold you

The first time you pack it all up
And drive alone across America
Please remember the words that I told you

Keep to the old roads
Keep to the old roads
And you'll find your way
You'll find your way

If love is what you're looking for
The old roads lead to an open door
And you'll find your way
You'll find your way
Back home

And I know you'll be scared when you take up that cross
And I know it'll hurt, 'cause I know what it costs
And I love you so much and it's so hard to watch
But you're gonna grow up and you're gonna get lost
Just go back, go back

Go back, go back to the ancient paths
Lash your heart to the ancient mast
And hold on, boy, whatever you do
To the hope that's taken hold of you
And you'll find your way
You'll find your way
If love is what you're looking for
The old roads lead to an open door
And you'll find your way
You'll find your way
Back home

Andrew Peterson You'll Find Your Way Comments
  1. Malachi Watters

    this song is so meaningful to me.

  2. Bulma IRL

    My children are grown and gone, and the trials for them have begun... It crushes me to have to watch it happen. I found this song, and was shocked at the honesty of emotion on Mr. Peterson's face... I felt like my own heart was reflected back to me there. I listened to to song and sang along over and over, praying for my children. Praying their feet will remember the way. Thank you. God be with you, brother.

  3. jason muhr

    What a great song

  4. Noah Grant

    If you only knew what an impact this had on me. I needed this. Thank you. I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it someday for a crown.

  5. Cyka Blyatman

    I’m going through some truly dark times right now, and when I hear this song it’s as if God himself is cheering this lost little boy on. Thank you Andrew Peterson from the depths of my soul, God bless you!

  6. Linda Ellison

    This moved me to tears. So beautiful and so touching.

  7. Bích Thương

  8. Clarence_AOL

    Excellent.

  9. Saron afworki

    one of my favorite song.

  10. Jared Franc

    Stumbled across this song tonight, never heard it before, brought some hope back that I’ll find my way.

  11. DEAN JACKSON

    I am always struck by the lyric "Lash your heart to the ancient mast." It hits me so hard. A reference to siren song from Homer's Illiad/Odyssey.It's a humble awakening that you aren't strong enough to resist so you do whatever it takes to keep from yielding...

  12. Tad Pole

    As a lover of the "old ways" and "roads that go ever, ever on" I truly thank you for this song

  13. Archynan

    Hope. Adventure. Purity. Solidity in faith. This song covers it all.

  14. Raquel Pacheco

    Essa música é mt lindaaa😍😍

  15. Blumengeschenk

    Good and simple video. Leaves, forest and music. Continue in this direction. Is a good and nice video. A heartfelt thank you!

    Archynan

    The lantern is such a good touch.

  16. Blumengeschenk

    Thank you.

  17. Mr G

    Andrew your music i am so glad i have discovered its simply amazing really love your vocals very unique and feel every word you sing. God bless you 🙌🏼

  18. Doug Martin

    Thank you, Brother Andrew. Your music is a tremendous blessing to me.

  19. Leann Klingensmith

    Anyone else here in 2018 ...and sobbing :')

    Lisa M

    Chris Tomlin just released his version of "Is He Worthy?" which brought me to Andrew Peterson's original, and now here. So beautiful...

    Nora Reeves

    Leann Klingensmith - Sure am. Repeatedly, but just noticed your question. As a mother of 3 grown sons who have more than their "fair" share of struggles, this song pretty much wrecks me every time I hear it. The same goes for his song, "Be Kind to Yourself." "Is He Worthy?" also moves me to tears, but for different reasons. Blessings

    Leslie Woodruff

    Yes, I'm sobbing , but in 2019 now

    Andrew Locke

    Still here in 2019. As my children are entering various stages from leaving for college to entering middle school to beginning to lose the innocence of early childhood, I pray this:


    Go back, go back to ancient paths
    And lash your heart to the Ancient Mast!
    And hold on boy, whatever you do
    To the Hope that's taken hold of you!

    Sir Madrigal

    2020 New Year’s Day and bawling...

  20. Blumengeschenk

    Schönes Video mit viel Power

  21. Sultana Ionut

    When I look at you, boy
    I can see the road that lies ahead
    I can see the love and the sorrow

    Bright fields of joy
    Dark nights awake in a stormy bed
    I want to go with you, but I can’t follow

    So keep to the old roads
    Keep to the old roads
    And you’ll find your way

    Your first kiss, your first crush
    The first time you know you’re not enough
    The first time there’s no one there to hold you

    The first time you pack it all up
    And drive alone across America
    Please remember the words that I told you

    Keep to the old roads
    Keep to the old roads
    And you’ll find your way
    You’ll find your way

    If love is what you’re looking for
    The old roads lead to an open door
    And you’ll find your way
    You’ll find your way
    Back home

    And I know you'll be scared when you take up that cross
    And I know it'll hurt, 'cause I know what it costs
    And I love you so much and it's so hard to watch
    But you're gonna grow up and you're gonna get lost
    Just go back, go back

    Go back, go back to the ancient paths
    Lash your heart to the ancient mast
    And hold on, boy, whatever you do
    To the hope that's taken hold of you
    And you'll find your way
    You'll find your way
    If love is what you’re looking for
    The old roads lead to an open door
    And you’ll find your way
    You’ll find your way
    Back home

    Thank you!!

  22. Kirsty McAllister

    This somehow makes me think of Daniel going to Babylon.

  23. Southern Gal

    One of my closest friends grew up with Andrew and they're still friends today. They have lunch whenever his tours take him to Nashville.

  24. Melissa D

    Will you please do this video with lyrics?

    Best gospel singer! Love his reality, and his music and his love of the Word is obvious.

  28. Alice Manneklint

    The first time I heard this song was live. I cried so much

  29. Eden Locke

    This song will forever and always bring me to tears, there is always one song on his albums that hit home with me. All of them can relate to me, but there is always one song that I hear when I most need it.

  30. emdgrl

    He is referencing Jeremiah 6:16! I love it.

  31. colton urban

  35. Zach Payne

    glorious

  36. Kitt Horton

    12 people need to keep to the old roads.

    lgne Elrap

    @Kitt Horton Just 12...that's all? Please expound.

    'Spresso

    +Glen Pearl he's referencing the amount of people who have "disliked" the video. This is Kitt's humerous way of saying he likes this video and 12 people are wrong for disliking it.

    Kitt Horton

    Exactly, well said TheSwift

  37. lgne Elrap

    The Lord found me....34 years ago, and I still feel like a little boy wondering out in the woods. Wanting to be 'grown up,' wanting to make the right choices in life, never wanting to hurt anyone, never wanting to lose anyone, never wanting to disappoint anyone, never not loving my family and friends....but here I sit, in the dark shadow of an old tall tree that has loomed over me for,years. The only 'Light' I see is the Light of The Lord, hanging on the 'tree' He bore; hanging on the 'Love' He has shown.

    Abagayle Thies

    +Glen Pearl
    I feel the same!

    Archynan

    Thanks for being so transparent Glen. I think you might also like the song, "Man" by Reliant K. It really addresses the feeling of staying a boy too long.

    dbthomps11

    read and sing the Psalms. Praise/lament/prayer!!!!

    Mathew Lintin

    God bless you friend

    Betsy McPeak

    Glen, I just read this, and it's been 3 years since you wrote it. It brought tears. I hope and pray you are finding yourself in the Light with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  46. Mickey Kit

    On Bebo Norman's retirement tour, Peterson dedicated this song to him. Then he jokingly sang, "When I look at you, Bebo..." The place was a mess with laughter. AP had to start over.

    Agreed!

    God Bless you Andrew love your songs.

  50. nolongervictoria

  52. Marching-Memories Cinema

    his is what the Lord says:

    “Stand at the crossroads and look;
    ask for the ancient paths,
    ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
    and you will find rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16

  53. Hava-re

  54. R.J. Spencer

    Is andrew Peterson sick?

  55. Sam Beiler

    Awesome Awesome!!!

  56. DAVE MISAL

    I love the sequence about "lash your heart to the ancient mast" - such a poignant image...

    Archynan

    And an awesome reference to the Odyssey!

  57. The Adult Contemporary Music Channel

    Melodic.

  58. daisychick3030

    I saw him sing this live, and he did an amazing job. He really loves the Lord and his family. It's true to see he means everything he says in this song.

  59. Laura Lynn

    "Lash your heart to the ancient mast.."

    Such beautiful words.

  60. ps100vs2

    Who directed & produced this video?

  61. Nancy Ball

    This had special meaning since my son is a Scout and I could almost picture him as the boy in the video. He's only a year from being a high school senior, but still seems so caught between "getting it" and being lost in his childhood. Beautiful song of hope and direction. Thank you.

  62. LindaPTS

    Wow! Another great video for another great song! Love your music and stories!

  63. hammer9596

    Striking and hauntingly beautiful. I think of my 16 year old son. Just beginning to take those halting steps toward living his life. May the Lord be with him, and you.

  64. Amy Darby

    I love this!

  65. James D. Witmer

    It's so easy to love progress and modernity. Too often they mean little more than *transient*. I love this call to history and heritage. Thanks, AP.

  66. Jennifer Beckett

    LOVE LOVE LOVE AP!

  67. Tom Krausse

    Only Andrew Peterson can do a beautiful Christian video talking about the travails of becoming a man in today's society. Maybe' if we concentrated on raising our boys to show their emotions rather than bottle them up we would have fewer teenage boys in their early 20's lashing out at society. Thank you Andrew for singing about an issue which is not looked at thoroughly enough.

  68. Ming-Wai

    This is one of my favorite songs. I am super happy there is a music video now :) :)
