Carrie Underwood – Jesus take the wheel

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati

On a snow white Christmas Eve

Goin’ home to see her mama & her daddy with the baby in the backseat

Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline

It’d been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind and she didn’t pay attention

She was going way too fast

Before she knew it she was spinning 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

 

[Chorus:]

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

Save me from this road I’m on

Jesus, take the wheel

 

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder

And the car came to a stop

She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock

And 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”

 

[Chorus:]

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

Save me from this road I’m on

Jesus, take the wheel

JESUS, PEGANGLAH KEMUDINYA

Jumat lalu dia pergi ke mengendarai mobilnya ke Cincinnati

Di malam Natal yang bersalju

Pulang ke rumahnya untuk bertemu dengan ibu dan ayahnya dengan anaknya yang duduk di kursi belakang

Masih kira-kira 50 mil lagi perjalanan yang harus ditempuh dan ia hamper kehabisan bensin juga kepercayaan

Setahun belakangan ini terasa begitu sulit

Dia memikirkan banyak hal di kepalanya sampai-sampai ia tidak perhatikan jalan

Dia jalankan mobilnya terlalu cepat

Sebelum dia menyadarinya, dia sudah berputar di belakang kaca hitam yang tipis

Dia melihat hidupnya dan hidup anaknya berlalu dengan cepat

Dia bahkan tak sempat menangis

Dia sangat takut, dia angkat kedua tangannya

Reff:

Jesus, peganglah kemudinya

Ambillah dari tanganku

Karena aku tak dapat melakukannya sendirian

Aku melepaskan/merelakan semuanya

Maka berikanlah aku kesempatan sekali lagi

Selamatkanlah aku dari jalan ini

Jesus, peganglah kemudinya

Udara bertambah dingin ketika ia bisa bersandar lagi di tempat duduknya dan mobil pun berhenti

Dia menangis ketika ia lihat bayinya tidur pulas di kursi belakang

Dan untuk pertama kali setelah sekian lama

Dia tundukkan kepalanya untuk berdoa

Dia bilang “aku minta ampun atas cara hidupku selama ini, aku tahu aku harus berubah, jadi mulai saat ini, malam ini…”
