The Path of Truth

An exhilarating path it is but a lonely one. Each segment of this path brings its trials and troubles but also its rewards along with proof and assurance that any segment of it is more than worth the endeavour.

The Path of Truth

Well, here we go down the path of truth again,

Looking danger in the eye, fearing nothing but the Lord.

This path is hard and there are few that care to come

But as we go along we find that chains will all be left behind.


The tears we shed both for ourselves and our friends

Aren’t worth comparing to the glory that’ll be ours when we’re done.

It’s like a dream; it’s like a story of outer space;

It’s like a fairy tale for children

But as we go we find it’s true.


I wouldn’t stop and turn around for all the world;

It’s life or death for me

And those who’ve realized the facts of life.

Let come what may even death if that must be

But I’m convinced that I obey the One Who’ll finally set me free.


The light grows bright as I come closer to the end

And worldly pleasures and possessions fade away as so much smoke.

I find a joy within me bubbling to the surface

As in peace I run the race

That will soon give me the prize.


Dauphin, MB; before Israel, 1979
