Here is something I pray someone considered before May 14, 1998.
You see, on that day, I'm sure God had a very frank discussion with Sinatra.
And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.
My life has not been pure.
My heart desired to have things my way.
But life was at its best, when I did it His way.
My sins were quite a few,
But now they’re gone, no more to mention.
He did what He had to do
And saw it through for my redemption.
He planned my charted course,
Each careful step along my pathway.
That path was easiest, when I walked it His way.
Yes, there were times, I surely knew
When I turned my back on Him; it’s true.
But through it all, when I had doubt
He’d lift me up, so now I shout.
He faced it all so I could try to live life His way.
I've loved; I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill of my own choosing.
And now, it’s much more clear,
No longer so confusing.
To think He did all that
I boast of Him, not in a shy way.
And thank Him for the times when I did it His way.
For I’m only a man, what have I got?
If not for Grace, then I have naught.
I know the Truth and that it’s real
And before Him I gladly kneel.
My sin is gone and Christ lives on;
I must go His way! (pause)
(Sung slowly) Our sin is gone (pause)
And Christ lives on; (pause)
(Sung very slowly) Let’s do it His way.
