It's not an easy road at times
To live for Jesus Christ
As newborn babes we struggle on
Figuring out our new life.
Mistakes we make and make them often
Until we are friends with prayer
We learn to take our burdens to Him
And cast on Him our cares.
I've been restored many a time
When I failed the Lord
Stopped my tithing, church going, reading
Things I could ill afford.
But God who loved me in His mercy
Came to rescue me
Drew me back into His fellowship
Oh so tenderly.
Of grace and mercy He has abundance
How little did I know
He still had a plan for my life
Though it unravelled slow
But now I keep my eyes on Jesus
Who said, "Come follow me."
My career path, a fisher of men
Praise God for Calvary.
