Man standing on a maze - looking out at the world.

Start Over

        When you've trusted God and walked his way
        When you've felt his hand lead you day by day
        But your steps now take you another way ...
        Start over.

        When you've made your plans and they've gone awry
        When you've tried your best and there's no more try
        When you've failed yourself and you don't know why ...
        Start over.

        When you've told your friends what you plan to do
        When you've trusted them and they didn't come through
        And you're all alone and it's up to you ...
        Start over.

        When you've failed your kids and they're grown and gone
        When you've done your best but it's turned out wrong
        And now your grandchildren come along ...
        Start over.

        When you've prayed to God so you'll know his will
        When you've prayed and prayed and you don't know still ...
        When you want to stop cause you've had your fill ...
        Start over.

        When you think you're finished and want to quit
        When you've bottomed out in life's deepest pit
        When you've tried and tried to get out of it ...
        Start over.

        When the year has been long and successes few
        When December comes and you're feeling blue
        God gives a January just for you ...
        Start over.

        Starting over means "Victories Won"
        Starting over means "A Race Well Run"
        Starting over means "God's Will Done"
        Don't just sit there ..............

        START OVER!
