God's love through 80s glam rock

As I was driving home from Mass this morning, where I had my confession heard, I heard an acoustic version of Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again".
As I was listening, I felt that God was sending an incredible message my way, one of a failed search for happiness in the temptations of this world, and of discovering true happiness only by walking with Him.
The song isn't particularly religious on the surface, but by changing the lyrics just ever-so-slightly, I knew beyond any doubt that God was there with me.

Here is what I heard, with some minor ecclesiastical editing:


I don't know where I'm going
But, I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises
In the sins of yesterday
An' they haunted my mind
I was wasting all my time

But, my heart was broken
Here I was again

Tho' I kept searching for an answer
I never seemed to find what I'm looking for
Oh Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on

Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An' I've been trying to walk on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I've been trying to walk alone
But I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

I'm just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity

An' I'm gonna love You
For the rest of my days
Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An' I can't go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
And I thought that I was born to walk alone
An' I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

So here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again

Cos I know what it means
To walk with you and leave these broken dreams

An' I've been trying to walk on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a sinner I had thought I walked alone

But you've lifted my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

An' I don't have to walk on my own
You will lead me down the road that brings me home
By your grace, I know I'll never walk alone
Cos I know what it means
That your love will bring me to that land of dreams
