10. The Other Side

A Way To See In The Dark
by Jason Gray



 

I stood on the edge of 8 years old
On a mountain top in Minnesota
Behind my old grade school
Weíd steady our nerve and take a breath
Throwing ourselves to certain death
But the kings of the hill must fight to keep their rule

I went back there a couple years ago
That mountain was twenty feet tall

Skip to the scene where I was sixteen
Taking my turn on the tilt-a-whirl
Holding the hand of a brown eyed girl
I thought would be the one
When the ride got rough we were torn apart
The spinning stopped like a broken heart
I blinked and she was gone

I felt shipwrecked at the edge of the world
But love came and found me again

On the other side itís easier to see the way
His hand provides just in time to save the day
And I realize the mountains I was scared to climb
Arenít as big as I thought they were
When Iím on the other side

Skip to the scene where Iím on my knees
Holding on Ďtil the morning light
Trying to trust when the moneyís tight
In a hope I canít explain
Crossword puzzles in the waiting room
Praying for an answer soon
To fill in all the blanks

But Iíve been here many times before
And loveís always carried me through

How many times am I destined to prove
I canít do this all on my own
But there is freedom in failing and finding his mercy
And standing in front of his throne
Iím not as big as I thought I was

So I wonít be afraid
No matter what the trouble is I see today
The maker of the mountains, He will make a way
To lead me through the darkness to the other sideÖ

Every chapter that weíve been through
Has taught me to rely on you
Jesus teach me that again
