The Long Road with Jesus


We hit the road together not knowing
Just what direction we’d both end up going
But God called us out - we know that for sure
And He’s proven to us that in Him we’ll endure

Together we needed such different graces
He brought us together from different places
We Two He intended to make into one
And what He had in mind is what He has done.

We’ve walked many a mile on this long road with Jesus
You and me and  our faithful friend
And no matter how  anyone else sees us
We’ll make it with Him to the end.

Each step in the daylight and the stumbling dark
So many these miles have worn on us its marks
With quite a few detours  along the way
We were never forsaken even when we strayed

So often we were going without knowing
But Jesus persisted  in the grace He was showing
So often we wanted to lay down our load
But then mercy’s markers led us on that road.

We’ve walked many a mile on this long road with Jesus
You and me and  our faithful friend
And no matter how  anyone else sees us
We’ll make it with Him to the end.
