701 You choose your road 8-20-17 (these lines are for anyone who is musical and feels like it’s worth your time to put this – song – to music. )

When my mind caught up to my body
I began to choose my fate,
and I choose the “small and narrow”
for my road to Heavens gate.
But before to long I felt it,
that sirens call I’d hear
and I know my soul began to slide
to the path that’s broad and wide.

(chorus)

Broad and wide!
Broad and wide!
I felt my soul
begin to slide
to the road that’s
broad and wide!

I left my lovin’ lady,
my home, my kids, my Lord!
I spent my money
on booze and a hussy
and never saw the light.
But in the middle of every night
I lay alone and cried.
For I knew my soul
was bound for Hell
on the road that’s
broad and wide.

(chorus)

One night I lay
on a trashed filled street,
all bloodied from a drunken brawl
and I saw my fate before me
as I answered Satan’s call.
My wild oats rot shallow,
my life was shit (dirt?) in a barrel!
So I called to the God who will always hear
and prayed to Him to hold me near
and lead my soul as my Momma told
back to the road that’s small and narrow.

Broad and wide!
Broad and wide!
I sware my soul that very night
got off that road and turned to right,
to the road that’s
small and narrow.

My wife forgave with open arms,
my children hugged me tight!
I left that awful road that night
with tears of joy, not sorrow!
For He put my soul
an the small and narrow,
on the small and narrow road.

Small and narrow!
Small and narrow!
That’s the road you have to stay
if you want the Lord to hear you pray,
if you want to stand with Him that day,
on that glorious Judgment Day!

The small and narrow!
Small and narrow!
If you want to be with the Lord that day,
on that glorious Judgment Day,
you have to stay
on the small and narrow,
on the Small and Narrow Way!
