When you've trusted in Jesus and walked His way,
When you've felt His hand lead you day by day,
But you steps now take you another way... Start over.
When you've made your plans and they've gone away,
When you've tried your best till there is no more try,
When you've failed yourself and you don't know why... Start over.
When you've told your friends what you plan to do,
When you've trusted them, but they didn't come through,
Now you are all alone and it's up to you... Start over.
When you failed your kids, and they're grown and gone,
When you've done your best but it turned out wrong,
And now your grandchildren have come along... Start over.
When you've prayed to God so you'll know His will,
When you've prayed and prayed but you don't know still,
When you want to stop because you've had your fill... Start over.
When you think you're finsihed and want to quit,
When you've bottomed out in life's deepest pit,
When you've tried and tried to get out of it... Start over.
When the year's been long and successes few,
When December comes and you're feeling blue,
God gives a January just so you... Start over.
Starting over means victories won.
Starting over means a race well run.
Starting over means the Lord's... "Well done"!
