Life Lessons

Emmaus Road

Road of broken dreams

Road of nightmares

Crucifixion screams

Our own hope had been…

What will we do now?

Go our separate ways

Nothing’s what it seems


Was it not ordained?

The path of suffering

Isn’t this the common tale?

From life’s entering

All is pain and grief and woe

Not much we can sing

Do your best but still you know

Death crowns everything


Until the stranger on the road

Turned this tale around

The battle of good and evil

Is fought on every ground

And life shall be the victor

Listen to that sound

The Lord who died is risen

In our sorrow joy is found
