There's a fine line Between contentment and greed Between the things that I want And the things that I need
Between "enough is enough" And where desires feed It's a fine line How do I live with so much
Here with the spoil of the blessed And not abandon this boat For the sea of excess To aspire to great things
Yet be filled with humbleness It's a fine line--Oh yes, it's a fine line
[Chorus] So where do I walk, Where is my place The straight and the narrow The road of grace Holdin' fast to You, Walkin' at Your pace Walkin' on the fine line Walkin' on the fine line Walkin' on the fine line There's a fine line
Between taking bread with a lost man And being consumed by his way While reaching out in love Temptation's right at your door
Guard what you're thinkin' of It's a fine line When I hide my eyes From the darkest of our life's insanity
From the worst of the world's profanity I've gotta be careful I don't miss anyone in need of me It's a fine line--Oh yes, it's a fine line
And can I embrace the world's sorrow And not be carried away by life's rain Know the power of the resurrection And still know the fellowship of His pain
Not talkin' 'bout walkin' fences Not talkin' 'bout compromise But living and breathing as pleasing in His eyes If I've said it once, I've said it a million, no a billion times,
"There's a fine line between so and so."
The black and white Doesn't give so much trouble. At least when I choose black or White, I KNOW I'VE DONE IT! The faith, on-the-edge walk, Requires a surer foot that I have...it requires leading.
