For so long you patiently waited.
I ran on ahead, doing things my way
Faster don’t you see?
So I ran on ahead
I did not listen for Your gentle voice
Running ahead was my choice.
Far better for me.
Doing things my way, in my own time
That is why I ran on ahead.
You were too slow for me.
I stumbled in my haste, falling on my face.
All because I ran ahead.
I learned of Your amazing grace.
I turned, and in my pain I looked back.
You had waited there for me.
