Beyond the mountain there is a lake.
Some how it summons me, come here.
I was once Baptized in this lake.
I tried to do all that was right.
I wanted to be like Jesus.
He is the Hero of my soul.
I recall this lake so fondly.
It is in my heart forever.
I fell from a good pedestal,
I found my way back to Jesus
I’ve been through tragedy for life.
Known sickness, liars, and cheaters.
They have tramped on my life for years.
But with God’s strength, I can move on.
So the lake reminds me of God.
The good things he brought to my life.
