I stood at the turning point, frightened and scared
The mighty decision, was all that I feared
I looked for support, none was to be found
Only two separate tracks, lay there on the ground.
One seemed so simple, like the way I had come
No turning was needed, I just had to run
Downhill it was, and breakneck the pace
The outcome was sure—a dark gloomy place.
Then I turned to the other way, narrow and straight
And fear filled my being, resentment and hate
It seemed to go upward, to a far better place
But did I have to turn? - Oh what a disgrace!
At the start of the road was a crevasse of fear
A host of unknowns, and nobody there
I looked up for answers—oh what should I do?
I hadn't the courage to see either way through.
Then a voice from above whispered sweet in my ear
Yes you can do it, there's no need to fear
Make the turn, make the change, I'm sure it is best.
You leap in faith, and ill do the rest.
So I turned on that day, to a power more than me
I so fully surrendered, I gave him the key
I jumped the ravine, to walk in his will
And count on his nearness, over every hill.
And Today I look back, with thanks on that place
Where God in his goodness, showered his grace
He was there at the turning point, being my friend
And He’ll stay there beside me, right till the end
And I'm thankful to say, on this straight narrow way
God never leaves me, he's there every day
Showered with blessings, and grace to get through
I certainly hope you find this way too.
