Try Me One More Time

1. As I thumb back through life’s pages,

I think about the Rock of Ages,

How that down through life I stumbled as one blind,

But I remember when I faltered,

How you led me to the altar,

Oh, take me back and try me one more time.

 

2. If I could just live my life over,

Things I’ve done would be so different,

And today instead of heartaches I could smile,

All my life I’d live for Jesus,

And through the valley of the shadows,

I know that He would be a friend and guide.

 

3. There’s no hope here for tomorrow,

And we always seek to borrow,

From our yesterday a bit of sweet sunshine,

As we see our hope diminish,

In our search here to replenish,

We seem to stumble down life’s road as one that’s blind.

 

Chorus:

Take me back, my Lord, and try me one more time,

Bring to me again sweet peace of mind,

I remember things so pleasant as I walked,

Within your presence,

Take me, back dear Lord, and try me one more time.
