Footprints in the Sand Lyrics by Leona Lewis

Although these lyrics and song have been around since 2007 it wasn’t until I started this website that I heard of Leona Lewis’s ‘Footprints in the Sand’ song.

I think what really surprised me is the fact that Simon Cowell is the one who suggested the idea to base the song on the Christian poem Footprints in the Sand. When Leona Lewis was approached by Cowell she agreed that the song could be “really quite interesting” and knew that it would be an inspirational song with deep emotion.

My only world after listening to this song…WOW! Where have I been and how in the world did I miss this beautiful song?

If you have not had a chance to hear this powerful, moving song watch the video and be prepared to stand in Awe.

Lyrics to Leona Lewis “Footprints in the Sand”

 

You walked with me
Footprints in the sand
And helped me understand
Where I’m going

You walked with me
When I was all alone
With so much unknown
Along the way

I heard you say
I promise you
I’m always there
When your heart is filled with sorrow
And despair

[Chorus]
And I’ll carry you
When you need a friend
You’ll find my footprints in the sand

I see my life
Flash across the sky
So many times have I
Been so afraid
And just when I
Thought I lost my way
You gave me strength to carry on
Thats when I heard you say

I promise you
I’m always there
When your heart is filled with sorrow and despair

[Chorus]

When I’m weary
Well I know you’ll be there
And I can feel you
When you say

I promise you
I’m always there
When your heart is filled with sadness and despair

[Chorus]

When your heart is full of sadness and despair

[Chorus]
