What an unforgettable, glorious day, the day I changed direction
With a brand new heart and brand new King and a brand new destination!
Yet, still alive is a pull inside that draws me backward.
So, when it calls me to stay behind, this prayer will be my answer:

I don't wanna go back, Lord.  I only wanna go forward.
I don't wanna go back, Lord.  I wanna move on!
Give me strength, Lord, to overcome again
'Cause I don't wanna go back, Lord.  I wanna move on!”

Some days I do what I don't wanna do and I don't do what I wanna do.
I'm weary sore from an inside war – Who will come to rescue?
But thanks to Him Who conquered sin and gives me the vict'ry!
So, when temptation knocks again, I'll sing with all that's in me:

The sins I know that would shake my soul are sins that keep me company,
And days abound when they keep me down with nothing left within me.
Oh, Lord, it's then that I feel Your mighty hand behind me.
You move my soul to the onward goal and keep my lips repeating....
