When we feel we have nothing left to give,
and we are sure that the song has ended,
when our day seems over, and the shadows fall
and the darkness of the night has descended,
where can we go to find the strength
to valiantly keep on trying?
There’s but one place to go and that is God,
and dropping all pretense and pride.
we can pour out our problems without restraint
and gain strength with him at our side.
And together we stand at life’s crossroads
and view what we think is the end,
but God has a much bigger vision,
and He tells us it’s only a bend.
For the road goes on and is smoother,
and the pause in the song is a rest,
and the part that’s unsung and unfinished
is the richest and sweetest and best.
So rest and relax and grow stronger…
Let go and let God share your load.
Your work is not finished or ended…
You’ve just come to a bend in the road.
