6 TBSP cocoa, 1/4 C butter, 1 C sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/3 C flour, 2 eggs, Cook 350 - 25 mins.




The road is long and the journey’s far.
I can’t turn back, I’ve gone too far.
How long I wait for time to end,
The road is long. I cannot mend.

To much temptation, I’ve given in.
Too much, temptation, I’ve given in.
I’ve gone too far to turn back now.
I’ve gone too far to live for Him.

I stand, I wait for time to end,
My time to end, when will it end!?
I hear of God’s Forgiving Grace,
But I’m too far-gone to reach His Face.

I’ve just to ask for it, I hear.
For me He died, He’ll end my fear.
But I’ve gone too far in sin! I cry.
For me, Lord Jesus did not die.

If He would see me kneel to pray,
A hypocrite I’d be that day.
For I’ve gone too far to see His Face.
I’m too far gone for Healing Grace.
What time is good for you My Child?
I stand and wait for you My Child,
If you would kneel and pray to Me,
A hypocrite I would not see.

For I made the road you’re standing on.
What is too far? How long’s too long?
I made the time you’re living in.
My Blood will cover any sin.

Just kneel and pray to Me, My Child.
I’ll hold you dear to Me, My Child.
The road, to you, may seem too long.
But My Arms are Great and Very Strong.
