Waiting To Take You Back

Our earthly life has many fields,

In which we all can stray,

But God has one for all of us,

Where we all can stay.


Yes! Life has many roadways,

Lanes and trails and paths,

But if it’s heaven that you need,

Then through Jesus we must pass.


Life has many byways,

With creeks and rivers to cross,

But heaven is always waiting,

For the return of those now lost.


Life to some it is a maze,

As confusion reigns supreme,

For Satan locked the exit gates,

To the path where they had been.


So why not sort your problems out,

Through Christ get back on track,

For God up in heaven,

Is waiting to take you back.
