~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now and then these feet
Just take to wandering
Now and then I
Prop them up at home
Sometimes I think
About the consequences,
Sometimes I don't

Well, I realize that
Falling down ain't graceful
But I thank the Lord that
Falling's full of grace
Sometimes I take
My eyes off Jesus,
And that's all it takes

Well, I wish that I could say
That at the close of every day
I was happy with the way
That I'm behaving

'Cause Job, he chased an answer,
The wise men chased the child
Jacob chased her 14 years
And he captured Rachel's smile
Moses chased the Promised Land,
Joseph chased a dream
David, he chased God's own heart,
All I ever seem to chase is me

I've noticed through the years
And I've been thinking
That endings and regrets
Go hand in hand
Sometimes I break
That long tradition
'Cause I've done the best I can

But still, I wish that I could say
That at the close of every day
I was happy with the way
That I'm behaving

'Cause Samson chased a woman
And he chased the Philistines
I'm not quite sure what Jonah chased,
But I know he caught the sea
Cain, he chased the harvest
While Able chased the beasts
David he chased God's own heart
All I ever seem to chase is me

Jesus chased the money men,
And He chased His Father's will
He chased our sin to Calvary,
And he caught it on that hill
Saul, he chased the Christians,
Till his blindness made him see
David, he chased God's own heart,
All I ever seem to chase is me

Well, they say a race
Can only have one winner
And you know you've got to
Pull out front to win
Lord knows the only
Time I'm winning
Is when I'm chasing Him
