The Way Out

Lookin' for a way out
trying to get on top
The train stopped at the station
you're ready to go for one more hop

How long will you ride it
how long will you stay
You keep lookin' for the answers
yet tryin' to get away

You hear the whistle blowin'
one last time you turn around
Will the answer be on board
or are you disaster bound

Where is it you are headin'
where will you stop this day
The answer lies ahead
just one more pray

The feelin' is all around you
it's just outside your grasp
Oh please come closer won't You
there must be something that will last

You're headin' down the tracks
you hear the whistle blow
The train's comin' to a stop
at a station you don't know

Just then you think you heard it
the voice that you once knew
Oh hear Him now
He said He's comin' to help you

Maybe He's the way out
maybe He's the One
But wait...the train is leavin'
don't you want to get off and have some fun

Just then You hear Him sayin'
His voice so kind and true
Please don't get up and go
I've come to rescue you

I'm the One you've always needed
the One that loves you so
Please come and take a chance
try Me...I won't let go

This trains headin' for a station
at a place you've never known
It's goin' up to Glory
the place you'll call your own

My love is everlasting
you'll always be with Me
Just stay aboard this train
you'll find comfort there...just wait and see

One day soon I'm coming back
to take you home with Me
To a place that you call Heaven
where you'll spend eternity

Hi Chelle,
Your poem cheered me up tonight. I especially like the lines:
"Just then You hear Him sayin'
His voice so kind and true
Please don't get up and go
I've come to rescue you"
~God Bless~Lisa
