I Want to Go
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...
