I'm lookin' back
at a fork in the road many decades ago
when I saw my true condition
looking' now at the road that passed behind me
I had some help with my decision

I'm goin farther up the mountain
I'm movin' along I'm getting higher every step of the way
I'm goin farther up that mountain
and I'll be more alive when people say I'm gone

Walkin' along with the peril of fallin on the rocks below
Keeps my mind on consequences
I keep my eyes on the straight and narrow pathway, yeah
Cause up here there ain't no fences


Walkin along on the mountain of God is a challenge beyond
Sometimes I feel I'm goin' nowhere
But then I catch a glimpse of that infinite horizon
and each step is movin' up there

Just take at the road up ahead and the path behind
are you movin' in a safe direction?
Take the time to decide if the road that you are travelin'
Will take you to the Highest elevation

Cause I met a man, He had died for the sins of a multitude
He smiled at me with great affection
He said I am here for a short time, then forever
and I can count on His protection
