I found a bridge to Heavens Gate
That spanned the inlet to His place
And high above the Channels wrath
I'd walk unhindered by my past.
As I wandered up the bridge
I recognized how short life is
The gusts of 'Friscos Golden Gate
Insouciant 'spite, my looming fate.
I buckled up my winter coat
And faced the torrent at my throat
My lips and face were turned to stone
As I fought to span the Bridge alone.
I stopped a moment in the midst
And looked down through the growing mist
The boots I wore were so unkind
And couldn't make the guard rails climb.
A car stopped by my chosen space
A man emerged, about my age
I yelled he 'better not come close'!
Then looked back to the Sea below.
I scrambled fast atop the rail
And stood there in the harbours gale
I tried to talk myself backside
Above the din and raging tide.
The wind was blowing in my face
As I leaned into the roaring space
Of salted sea and billows roll
The tally of my life-long toll.
I cried out for the Saviours touch
To pull me free from evil's clutch
From all the fear that shadows man;
To resting safe in Jesus' plan.
And even as I poised myself
Above the ever thickening crowd
Of all the faces that I saw
Was His that stood out most of all.
I sat down up against the rail
As arms reached out to keep me there
And all across the starry realm
The Saviour wrote, "My son, not now".
I found the bridge to Heavens Gate
And walked insouciant, to the space
Where somehow I'd lost sight of Christ
But found Him there that harrowed night.
