The Narrow Door

Luke 13:22-30

 

Agonizomai

Not far from agony

It means to make an effort

It means to strive

To enter by the narrow gate

Go through the narrow door

Each day demands our effort

To walk on heaven’s floor

 

Don’t be lackadaisical

Wide boys will not win

Practise daily self-control

Good self discipline

Life’s journey is a purpose

We are heading for a place

Let that goal now guide you

Walk each day in grace

 

This is no idle saunter

Nor our resting place

Our life it is a pilgrimage

So each day set your face

Sun and rain will come to you

Each night we take our rest

Then rise again to walk the road

Until we reach the crest
