No Turnin' Back
Words & Music by

1.
The Is-rael-ites went runnin' out of Egypt
And the wil-der-ness was aw-ful hard to bear
When they came to Canaan's gate, Moses said, "The Lord be praised,
Didn't He promise us He'd get us there?

Chorus
No turnin' back . . . no turnin' back . . . no turnin' back...no turnin' back
Made up my mind to walk that line, no turnin' back...no turnin' back
Je-sus is my Friend . . . I'll . . . walk His Way to the very end
With Heaven as my goal . . . . . no . . . . . . turnin' back

2.
There's a wil-der-ness out there I gotta walk through
The hills . . . and the valleys steep and wide
Without Je-sus, I'd be lost, but with the pow-er of the cross
I'll keep on walk-in', I'll be safe and sanctified

3.
Now that jour-ney in the desert's not the problem
For the wil-der-ness is mostly in our mind
But be-lie-ving in the Lord . . . and in the pow-er of the Word
Will bring us safely through these troubled times.
