The Way


Oh the fear in this life,
And the choices we face,
Oh the pain and the strife,
And the quick hurried pace.

Oh the hard lessons taught,
And the way of life learned,
Oh the peace that is sought,
And the joy that is earned.

Oh the gladness in right,
And the conflict in wrong,
Oh the truth burning bright,
And the search to belong.

Oh the few earthly ties,
And the choices we make,
Oh the weak plaintive cries,
And the lives now at stake.

Oh the way of the cross,
And the steep narrow way,
Oh the burning of dross,
And the love here to stay.
