Road to Zion










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 

There is a road inside of you 
Inside of me there is one too 

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

  11. I love that son to!

    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
