To Glory!

Trusting for each next step
We step once, then twice, and then again.
A brother falls; his steps, they end
And yet, we journey on.

Falling to this lifelong race,
We look right, then left, to gauge the pace.
For now, he sees Christ face-to-face
And still, we journey on.

To glory –
Take us home to glory!
(To freedom in that place)
To dance and sing where echoes ring in praise.
Take us to that day…

‘Til then, we journey on.

Running hard on this, our quest,
We pause, cease and take a breath,
Discovering hidden, unknown depths
To help us journey on.

The end in sight, we see the day
Approaching and in every way
We press on toward the sanctuary –
And journey on without tarry.

To glory –
Take us home to glory!
(To freedom in that place)
To dance and sing where echoes ring in praise.
Take us to that day…

‘Til then, we journey on.

We’ll cease within a place of peace
And find ourselves upon our knees –
Away from sin and then complete
In the place we will call “Home”.
