old song - When I Look Back Down The Road

Post by jackiehagans » Mon Dec 03, 2007 3:37 pm

When I face a trial or test and I know I've done my best
I know somehow the Lord will see me through
When temptations come my way I get on my knees and pray
and I say Dear Lord now it's up to you.
chorus
when I look back down the road where I laid my heavy load
and I think of all the victories I've won
sometimes I get a thrill when I look back down the hill
and I see just where the Lord has brought me from.

There's a valley down below and no doubt I'll have to go
to walk that lonely road again someday
but it's not so bad down there with lilies blooming everywhere
and the Lord's traveling with me all the way.

There's a river wide and deep a mountain tall and steep
but you know I've been this way before
I'm much stronger Lord this time and I know I'll make it fine
cause that mountain it don't bother me no more.

Jackie,

Lewis Harrah wrote the song, "When I Look Back Down the Road". He passed away last year or year before. He wrote a lot of songs that are still sung in churches today. He was Apostolic, so most of the songs he wrote are sung in those churches and are more well known there. There's a few people on youtube.com who sing it, but they just don't do it justice. If you want the music, my husband, Lewis' nephew, could get it for you.

Blessings to you,
Kimberly

JD I just saw this post from you when I was looking up the lyrics for this song. I am sure his immediate family has the music and copyrights. His daughter is on Facebook so you can find her there. Her name is Debbie DeBusk.
