No More Drifting By

The days roll past as I’m just drifting through life
Successes and failures sometimes striving sometimes drifting
Can I afford this car, will I be happy with this house?
Sometimes it’s so exciting, but it’s all so pointless

The highs, the lows I’ve seen it all
Possessions and power, people and pleasure
But what’s the future got for me,
Will I be remembered or just lost in space?

(CHORUS 1)
And life goes drifting by...
Life goes drifting by.
It’s fun to play, but it doesn’t make sense
Another day another dollar one step closer to the grave
And life goes drifting by...

I see panic, I see confusion.
I see hunger, and I see anger
I see terror, people panic,
Some take advantage but no one cares

I’ve been bombarded it’s just like a movie
It hasn’t touched me, why should I care
All our freedoms disappearing,
This world is changing but we’re all asleep

(CHORUS 1)
And life goes drifting by...
Life goes drifting by.
It’s fun to play, but it doesn’t make sense
Another day another dollar one step closer to the grave
And life goes drifting by...

And then one day I meet this guy,
He knows exactly why he’s here.
He doesn’t have much but he’s got it all
He’s got a peace, and he knows what’s coming next

(BRIDGE)
What’s Your secret strength?
How can I find your peace?

“Dust your Bible, read it through”
“God knows what’s happening – predicted it before”
“I know it’s true my life has changed”
“You’ll find my Jesus, hope, and prophecies”

(CHORUS 2)
No more drifting by...
My life’s now full of hope!
Around me turmoil panic strife
But my life’s got meaning and I’m safe in His hands
And there’s no more drifting by...

I open the Book, and I drink in the words
I see myself in the stories and I hear His voice
I realise I’m a sinner and I’m worthy to die
But I cry out for help and He answers my cry!

(CHORUS 2)
And there’s no more drifting by...
My life’s now full of hope!
Around me turmoil panic strife
But my life’s got meaning and I’m safe in His hands
And there’s no more drifting by....

Well I’m still a human and I’ve got lots to learn
Sometimes I’m still discouraged but He picks me up again
We’re in a cosmic battle, but I’m not scared
‘Cause I know I’m on the winning side
My God is coming soon, and He’ll take me to His side

(CHORUS 3)
And there’s no more drifting by...
My life’s now full of hope!
I know my future’s sure...
My life makes so much sense...
And you can have it too...
You’ll find there’s no more drifting by.His hands
And there’s no more drifting by….

(STYLE 1)
Well I’m still a human and I’ve got lots to learn
Sometimes I’m still discouraged but He picks me up again
We’re in a cosmic battle, but I’m not scared
‘Cause I know I’m on the winning side
My God is coming soon, and He’ll take me to His side
