The Skinny Path

Ronald Bunch 1982 (Grand Rapids)



I see a path
 that glows forth.

 It’s clean and people
 know it has a worth.

With a clump in a bump,
With a clang in a bang.

I was there in the moment
 and I sang.

 This was a song
 and I did little wrong.

 Christ saved my soul
 By hitting on Him a blow.

This is the path
 that I must follow.

Now I don’t appease God's Wrath
And only do what Jesus would allow.
