Jesus Take The Wheel

She was drivin' last Friday,
On her way to Cincinnati,
On a snow white Christmas Eve.
Goin' home to see her Mama an' her Daddy,
With the baby in the back seat.
Fifty miles to go an' she was running low,
On Faith and gasoline.
It'd been a long hard year.

She had a lot on her mind,
An' she didn't pay attention:
She was goin' way to fast.
An' before she knew it, she was spinnin',
On a thin black sheet of glass.
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes:
She didn't even have time to cry.
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air.

Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
'Cause I can't do this on my own:
I'm letting go.
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on:
Jesus take the wheel.

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder,
An' the car came to a stop.
She cried when she saw that baby in the back seat,
Sleeping like a rock.
An' for the first time in a long time,
She bowed her head to pray.
She said: "I'm sorry for the way I've been living my life.
"I know I've got to change, so from now on, tonight,

Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
'Cause I can't do this on my own:
I'm letting go.
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on:
Oh, Jesus take the wheel.

Oh, I'm letting go,
So give me one more chance.
Save me from this road I'm on;
From this road I'm on;
Jesus take the wheel.
Oh, take it, take it from me.
