O Lord, the way ahead seems so hard to walk,
The way is narrow, and I fear to tread.
But I thank You Lord that You have already
Walked the hardest path of all for me; The path to Calvary
So now, when I feel weary and disheartened,
I think of the cross You bore, and I am strengthened.
When I feel alone and rejected, I think
Of those who left Your side, and I know You've been there before me.
When I want to stray, I remember the stripes You bore,
Your nail-pierced hands, and I feel my shame.
When I no longer give my best to You,
I think of the blood You shed for me, and I am compelled to carry on.
O Lord, when the way ahead seems so hard to walk,
Let me always look towards the cross.
