Life is but a pilgrimage,
A narrow track through time,
The roads are rough, unchartered,
The hills are steep to climb.
But there’s something on that journey
that stops us turning back,
It gives us hopes to cherish
On that wild and fearful track.
It makes us hold our head up high
When Fear has brought us dread;
It takes Fear’s shackles from our heart
And gives us Faith instead.
It gives us Wisdom, Courage, Strength
When things aren’t as they seem ~
It tells our frail, yet fervent heart,
“You have the right to dream!”
You see, a Power has claimed us,
He will never let us go,
He’s the Mighty God our Father,
Who is greater than we know.
