“The Bend in the Road,”
Sometimes we come to life’s crossroads We view what we think is the end; But God has a much wider vision And He knows that it’s only a bend.
The road will go on and get smoother And after we’ve stopped for a rest, The path that lies hidden beyond us Is often the path that is best.
So rest and relax and grow stronger Let go, and let God share your load, And have faith in a brighter tomorrow You’ve just come to a bend in the road.
