I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now
I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now
Nothing for my journey now
Come too far to turn around
Come too far to turn around

(Verse I)
Running for Jesus, I've been running for a mighty long time
And I haven't, I'm not tired yet
I get so discouraged and so afraid
So I look to the hills from whence cometh my help
I'd rather know the home, beyond this world of chains

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse ii)
It's mighty good to know him, to know him for yourself
I'm going to live for Jesus and nobody else
You can't stop me, you can't turn me around
I'm on my way to Heaven and I won't turn around
I'm on my way to higher ground

(Repeat Chorus)

(Special Chorus)
Too far, I've come too far
(Repeat As Directed)

To End Song:
Come too far to turn around
Come too far to turn around
Come too far to turn around

    I have been going thru so much latley, and the lord brought this song to my remmemberance this morning at work. I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now, I have come to far to turn around. I hadn't heard this song for years. Praise god that he always knows how to minister to his children, at the right time. I love him so much, he is so good to us, and so faithful, even when we are not. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to praise god.
