used to walk a lonely road,
it seemed to be the way to go.
promised me the world if his bitter seeds I'd sow.
a while I lived in sin, I obeyed his wishes every day.
I cried out in my anguish, "Is there not a better way?"
other God in my life,
one true God is all I see.
other god will walk along the road of life with me.
have no other gods before me,
that commandment I'll stay true.
after knowing you, no other god will do.
was waiting there for me, 'cause He heard my anxious cry.
said, "I am the one true way, my followers never die."
His road seems tough at times,
according to God's will.
glad I chose my Lord's way,
I'm on that pathway still.
gods of silver and of gold lure the innocent with their lies.
could see the pit before them, if they'd only open up their eyes.
saw the error of my ways, before it was too late.
found the one true path, and it leads to Heaven's gate.
