Walk the Wire

In 1978, the great aerlist Karl Wallenda fell to his death. After his death, his wife said, "All Karl thought about for months before was falling. It was the first time he'd ever thought about that and it seemed to me that he put all his energies into not falling rather than walking the tightrope. If we think more about failing at what we are doing than about doing it we will not succeed."

If you think you'll fall, you'll fall

If you believe you'll stand, you'll stand

Even if the gusty winds blow

Even if things don't go as planned

If you see the narrow wire go forth

If you have a little faith step out

Walk towards your destination

Don't let winds cause you to doubt

If you think you'll conquer you will

If you believe, you will overcome

Don't fear falling to the rocks

Don't look back where you came from

Keep your eyes on Jesus straight ahead

He will grant you your desire

He will keep your feet from falling

He will help you to walk the wire
