(Chorus)
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
(Repeat)

(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.

    To me it means more than you'll ever know. I wanna thank god always. For blessing me to have grown up listening to such a spiritual woman of god. I don't know about any body else. But i do know this one thing the anointing is truly their. I've never been to one of her concerts except in my own house with the radio or videotape/now dvd. I feel the spirit how the anointing just flows right on through. I know right now she's just at a rehersal . But oh what a time what a time ,when all gods children get to heaven. Mother shirley i love how the lord uses u and i surely don't want my soul to be lost. I admire u ,to me your a spiritual mentor in my life. I may not be what i ought to be. But i thank god daily that i'm not what i used to be. When i first heard a miracle in harlem i said i have to have this tape and then i wanted to sing in the spirit just like u sang. So to me it means so much. I'm so glad that god is always on time. He knows just what u need when u need it. God bless u and your family.
