"Burn the Ships"

(Steven Curtis Chapman) "In the spring of 1519 a Spanish fleet set sail; Cortez told his sailors this mission must not fail; On the eastern shore of Mexico they landed with great dreams; But the hardships of the new world made them restless and weak; Quietly they whispered, "Let’s sail back to the life we knew" But the one who led them there was saying: Burn the ships, we’re here to stay. There’s no way we could go back; Now that we’ve come this far by faith; Burn the ships, we’ve passed the point of no return; Our life is here; So let the ships burn..."


Burn the Ships! We're here to stay. There's NO WAY we could go back, now that we've come THIS FAR BY FAITH! Burn the Ships! We're past the point of no return. Our life is here... SO LET THE SHIPS BURN!" No turning back! The Land of Opportunity...
