Brought up in the church against your will
Forced to sit through sermons and be still
Making trouble for the Sunday School teacher
Running through the pews
Just a child then
You were wide-eyed and confused
Screaming on the bus with all the youth
More concerned with dating than with truth
Too cool to join the choir, too smart to go to school
Church was boring
And the scriptures, just more rules

[Chorus:]
But all through the years
Your eyes and ears
Saw just enough of Christ among the people here
To know that you could trust
To know that you were loved
Until there came the day
Your heart could finally say (pray)
I want to go where You are going, Lord
I want to be among Your people where You are
I cannot live my life alone
I don't know how
But You would not bring me this far to leave me now

Finally off to college for the fall
Fifty different lifestyles down one hall
Your professors question everything
Your roommates test your faith
And easy answers seem so out of place

Running from the chapel with your spouse
And making monthly payments on the house
You were living for your children
And they up and moved away
Your friends seem older
And worry fills your days

(Repeat Chorus)
You would not bring me this far to leave me now...
