LOOK’N AHEAD

E                                                 

A Memory(6) and Looking back

         A                         E

Are two very different things

                 B7        

For memories can be our guide

                E        

While we put our past aside

             A         B7                       E

On our journey to the promised land

 

CHORUS

B7                     E

So I will sing a memory(6) for you

 A                                   E

Maybe you’d rather not hear

                 B7

About the good times, the bad times

       E

The hard times, and sad times

 A                     B7             E

Maybe… you’d rather not hear

VERSE 2

 E

And it’s time for moving on

            A                                   E

Cause nothing down here will last

                 B7

Just keep looking ahead

       E                         

For that is what HE(1) said

                    A         B7                E

And there’s danger living in the past

VERSE 3

E

Our days are filled with cares

                   A                                  E

But they’re mostly thorns(2) and tares(3)

                      B7

Just take the time to fill your lamp(4)

             E

It’s the only way you’ll shine

 A        B7           E

And there’s danger living for to-day

CHORUS

 

VERSE 4

 E

For some the road is long

            A                         E

While others have many turns

                   B7

Y’know the end will be the same

      E

For those who claim HIS name

                    A               B7             E

Cause they kept their eyes(5) on HIM


 

CHORUS


 

FINAL REFRAIN

E

Oh yes, it’s time for mov’n on

           A                                    E

Cause nothing down here will last

                 B7

Just keep look’n ahead

       E                        

For that is what HE(1) said

                    A          B7                E

And there’s danger living in the past


 


 

  1. Luke 9:62 “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Genesis 19:26 “But his wife looked back from behind him and she became a pillar of salt."

  1. From parable of the sower and the seed, Matthew 13:22 “He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word: and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.”

  2. From the parable of the tares, Matthew 13:24-30 “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let them grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

  3. From the parable of the ten virgins, Matthew 25:3-4 “They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

  4. Matthew 25:13 “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

  5. II Peter 1:12 “Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth”. II Peter 3:1 “I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance”.
