“Then Jesus, beholding him, loved him, and said unto him…
‘come, take up the cross, and follow Me.’
And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved;
For he had great possessions.” Mark 10:21-22 KJV
You said you gave your life to Me,
But you’re still holding on;
Afraid to give Me full control;
Sure something may go wrong.
You said you want to follow Me,
But you still run ahead;
Not content to keep My pace,
Or trace the path I tread.
Dear child, you seem so weary as
You’ve charted your own way.
Make Me the Captain of your life;
Release the wheel today!
And though the waters may seem rough,
You’ll never be alone;
For I will guide you through them till
I bring you safely home.
