A ROADSIDE EXPERIENCE

One day I was sitting alongside a road
Waiting for someone to help carry my load
My youth had been spent in hurt and pride
I was searching for someone behind whom I might hide
Someone I could blame for the wrongs I had done
I couldn't let go of past deeds that to me had been done
I went over them again and again in my mind
Never a moment of peace could I find
I turned to the things of this world to find peace
But hurtful memories of my past never ceased
Then one day I awoke to a terrible truth
With only the memories of a painful youth
o family,no friends, no home, no job
Alcohol and drugs were now my Gods
So there by that roadside I sat day after day
Hoping for someone to come my way
Someone to help me my burden to share
But there was noone who seemed to care
There eyes met mine with a contemptible stare
Finally one day on bended knees
I cried out "Doesn't anyone hear my plea?"
Suddenly in a voice so soft and low
I have been knocking at your heart's door
Hoping one day you would call on my name
Waiting for you, your life to change
It's my heart's desire that all men be saved
But it's a choice that you must make
Now is the time, won't you let me come in
In my love you'll find joy and peace within
Now is the time, don't hesitate
There's no promise of tomorrow, it may be too late
But of God's love I wanted no part
And tighter I closed the door of my heart
Never again have I heard his voice
Because I rejected his love, I made my choice
Today I know my time will soon come
When I'll stand before God's judgement throne
No excuse can I give when at last his face I see
And hear him say I never knew you, depart from me
