There is a way that leads to life 
The few that find it never die 
Past mountain peaks graced white with snow 
The way grows brighter as it goes

No stumbling pilgrim in the dark 
The road to Zion's in your heart

The river runs beside the road 
Its waters living as they flow 
In liquid voice the water calls 
On thirsty knees the pilgrim falls 

Sometimes a shadow dark and cold 
Lays like a mist across the road 
But be encouraged by the sight 
Where there's a shadow, there's a light 

Sometimes it's good to look back down 
We've come so far - we've gained such ground 
But joy is not in where we've been 
Joy is who's waiting at the end
