A HALF A MILE A DAY
 
One night after a concert I walked through the streets of the town
And came upon a little church
The service was over but the testimonials had just begun
People caught up in the spirit of the night
Just didnít want to leave So I stepped inside the door
And sat down by a little old lady in the back
A man stood up in front and said ďI just want all of you to know that
Iím going straight to heaven as fast as I can go Like an arrow shot from a bowĒ and he sat down
Another man stood up and said ďIím sailin' right straight into heaven
Like a giant clipper ship, sailin' on a sea of blue
And nothin's gonna deter me or keep me from that safe harborĒ
He sat down and another man stood up and said
ďIím flyin' into the portals of heaven on silver wings
Sailin' over all the troubles and trials down below Straight on inĒ and he sat down
The little lady beside me made it to her feet slowly And all got quiet as she raised her face
Not to the preacher or the congregation But toward heaven and prayerfully said
C                          F        C
Iím comin', Lord for my heavenly reward
                               F       C        G
Iím on my way to You, can You see me comin' through?
          F                          C              F
Through clouds of persecution and stumblin' on the way
    C         G        C   F             G     C
But I expect Iím makin' 'bout a half a mile a day
      F                             C
The road to Heaven doesnít have a rapid transit plan
                                                    G7
It's one way with no changes goin' to the promised land
    C                                 F
But I believe that if I'll heed the things He had to say
                      C          F      G      C
Even I might get to Heaven at a half a mile a day
       C                            F         C
Lord, when I let You lead, I donít make any speed
                                   F        C        G
'Cos I have to stop and touch the ones who need so much
             F                         C              F
And then sometimes others pull me off of Your narrow way
       C       G        C      F            G     C
And by my mistakes I barely make a half a mile a day
         F                              C
But the road to Heaven doesnít have a rapid transit plan
                                                    G7
It's one way with no changes goin' to the promised land
    C                                 F
But I believe that if I'll heed the things He had to say
                      C           F      G     C
Even I might get to Heaven at a half a mile a day
                      C           F      G     C
Even I might get to Heaven at a half a mile a day
