"This Journey is my own" by Sara Groves

When I stand before the Lord,
I’ll be standing alone
This journey is my own
Still I want man’s advice,
and I need man’s approval
This journey is my own

Why would I want to live for man,
and pay the highest price
What does it mean to gain a whole world,
only to lose my life

So much of what I do
is to make a good impression
This journey is my own
And so much of what I say
is to make myself look better
But this journey is my own

And why would I want to live for man,
and pay the highest price
And what does it mean to gain a whole world,
only to lose my life

And I have never felt relief like I feel it right now
This journey is my own
Cuz trying to please the world,
it was breaking me down
It was breaking me down

And now I live and I breathe for an audience of one
Now I live and I breathe for an audience of one
Now I live and I breathe for an audience of one
Cuz I know this journey is my own

And you can live for someone else,
and it will only bring you pain
I can’t even judge myself,
only the Lord can say, ‘Well done.’
Oh, this journey is my own
