! ! ! ! ! Come Walk That Path With Me
COME WALK THAT PATH WITH ME (Length 3 minutes)
Your time is near, heart filled with fear while you
lay upon your bed. Feeling of uncertainty now asking if
God is real, for your life has been a journey of hate and
intolerance, now you are wondering what you feel.
You taught your children there is no God, and church
was not your place, but now you lay in a hospital bed
uncertainty has become your grace.
As the time draws near, the being to whom you scorned,
becomes your very focus and now you know his name
God help me you say while you scream in desperate pain.
Alas the time of recognition has found it’s very place, and
you who laughed as Christians prayed now find yourself
Oh cry and cry out to God for He is truly fair and He may
Take you in His arms and quietly keep you there. Time is of
The essence for fever now is present and your eyes can barely
see so reach out for His forgiveness and hope for galilee.
I’ve asked you time and time again
Release yourself of burdened chains, unleash the hate
and disbelief, come walk the path to peace and enjoy
Listen to the voices whimsical and free, find your place
of contentment, far beyond the sea.
Come walk that path with me to a place in galalee
Where the gate will open and the angels sing while
their songs ring out with glee.
Come walk that path with me, where the angels soar above the sea
Where God holds out his palm, and all is well and calm.
Come walk that path with me and feel His glory grow
Feel the sense of peace and tranquility and freedom you
wanted to know
Come walk that path with me to the bottom of the stairs
And find your way on top of the hill, to the great house
God built for thee.
Come walk that path with me, feel the cool winds circle round,
Feel the essence of His love with your feet firm on the ground.
I’ve asked you time and time again, but your answer still was
Now you hold on to my hand and you beg of me my prayers,
And spiritual song but I need to truly know, are you ready to
Move along. Are you ready for that relationship with our
Father, great in Heaven.
Please tell me now oh tell me now what will your answer be.
There’s no time left, by God can’t you see. Speak, speak, I’m
Oh you held your mouth as if to speak and your eyes fell off
to sleep. Now the tears fall long upon my face, and I can only
Oh tell me Father, give me a sign, did my friend make it through,
only you know Father if she crossed your blessed shore. There
was nothing more I could do.
Quietly I leave your shell, lieing upon the bed, no scent of flowers, no
beautiful winds, just stillness, nothing more to be said. I shake
my head in disbelief how a soul could pass on when no realization
of the Father and the Son and I wonder, yes I wonder if your spirit will
