God Is My Co-Pilot

Joan awoke on the morning of the battle, she addressed the troops.
She ate her breakfast & she said her prayers.
She mounted her horse by standing on this stone.
Here in the main street of this town.
Centuries later, you can sit on this stone.
You can find out from books which side of the street Joan walked on.
But they don't answer the question that counts:
Why did Joan recant?

I guess if you're lucky you'll never find out.
But you know you will.
Sooner or later you'll come face to face w/ the answer;
When you turn a corner too quickly, or look around.

So many times you've met the compassionate gaze of Christ,
Now you see only yr own eyes looking back at you.
