The Road Home
If the road endures for one more bend,
or twist, before we reach the end.
If our hope endures for one more day,
then surely we will find our way.
If we can fly where only eagles dare,
our hearts will find Him waiting there.
If our weary feet can onward trod,
our journey’s end will be to God.
