Iíve never walked the streets of Jerusalem, nor touched the Wailing Wall;
Iíve never sailed the seas near Galilee, yet still I heard Your call.
For never has a prophet spoke the truth of things like You;
Who knew before I spoke a word of all things I did do.

Nor have I ever held a hand so strong my fears just slipped away;
In truth Iíve met no other God but You up to this day.
Despite all this Iím sad to say to Jesus now in truth;
I wish Iíd never walked away when I was just a youth.

I thought in my rebellious soul Iíd make it on my own;
If I knew then what I know now this hell I'd never have known.
Despite my pain and agony theirs peace within my sight;
If I can reach just one young heart and set its path aright.

I hope these words might cause someone to really stop and think;
Before they pick up that first drug or sip on that first drink.
Or maybe they might reach my Lord that He may touch their hearts;
And cause them to be peacemakers before the violence starts.

No matter what the outcome is Iíll gladly pay the cost;
That no young soul should blindly choose to suffer all Iíve lost.
The devil uses many tricks and works with many tools;
To squash the hopes of trusting teens and make them look like fools.

Itís time for me to end the lie and stop the angel act;
ĎCause Jesus is the only truth and that my friend is fact.
Now to the young ones growing up in suburb and in city;
You need to know where I am now you wonít get any pity.

You must decide whom you will serve right here this very day;
But anyone whose tasted hell knows Jesus is the way.
The good news is you can repent and choose the righteous path;
So please, I beg, turn to the Lord, lest you too face His wrath.
