Will you take the road that leads to life?
Or turn aside to follow your own whim
Or simply stop and settle where you are
Indifferent to virtue and to sin
The Lord sets out Jerusalem his goal
He knows what waits him there but still he goes
Is he a fool to walk into that den?
Avoid the place the danger heaven knows
But death will find us out so what we do
The road leads to our dying day we know
And how we meet it that is ours to do
In honesty yes that’s the way to go
I call upon the Lord to lead the way
To shine his light and call me every day
And grace to humbly walk the path he trod
And lead me home at last unto my God

Luke 9:51 Jesus resolutely took the road for Jerusalem. It is the journey of his life and he will face it. Our life journey also asks us to face each day and to walk the path before us. Do not fear or be afraid. Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly with your God.
