I Cannot Turn Back

How can I turn back now knowing what I do
Having been introduced to an unconditional love so true
How can I stop my walk of faith and cease it to exist
Knowing how God has brought me out of sin's deep abyss
If I suddenly stopped and turned around
Back into the enemy's chains I would be bound
If I ran away where would I hide
A river deep could not hold the anguish I would feel inside
I am totally thankful for all God has done for me
Grateful for His Sacrificial Lamb that set my soul free
Day to day with His grace I will do my best
To stay on the course that leads to righteousness
I know He will keep me steay and still
For truly my life is done by His will
His living water will quench me when I am thirsty
Fill my soul with His unending mercy
So I will remain planted and rooted by His mighty seed
For only in God will I truly believe
