At the cross my road began
With my parents at my side.
The road ahead I did not plan
The route was not mine to decide.
As I matured in faith and age
More and more the choice was mine.
The road I chose would be the gauge
Determining my life’s design.
Shying from my unproved judgement,
Needing more then parent's praise,
Jesus' voice came, sure and constant,
Guiding me through every phase.
Step by step this road I traveled
Not quite sure where it would end.
But my heart in peace could marvel –
Jesus was my constant friend.
Yes, at times the road’s been hilly.
Other times my path’s been smooth.
And now this choice that lies before me
Makes me, once more, test this truth.
Will I trust You to go with me?
Will You be there by my side?
I will take each step You show me
Trusting You will be my Guide.
