One day the journey of life will be over,
Hopefully we shall have reached the promised land,
Things do not always go as they are planned.
Sometimes the weather may be inclement,
Sometimes the road is hard to tread,
There are many distractions to entice us,
But we should always strive to press ahead.
If we have put our hand to the plough,
Then we should never look back,
But keep our eyes looking to the distance,
Seeking for the sign that marks our track.
Then hopefully we shall reach the eternal city,
At the end we shall have reached the Promised Land,
The road to life is narrow, the road to destruction is wide,
If we choose the way to life things will work out as we had planned.
