The road that leads to Heaven is a road that’s long and steep,
Sometimes it’s full of rocks and mud
and cracks within the street.
Sometimes the road is winding
and the stops to rest are few,
We go around in circles and
we don’t know what to do.
And then sometimes the narrow road
reveals no end in sight,
You travel long and travel hard
and deep into the night.
You look for signs to light the path
and signs cannot be found,
In fear you steer off course again
and you must turn around.
is a road that’s hard indeed,
But on this road you won’t be lost
for Christ will take the lead.
He’ll guide you on the dusty road
and through the wind and rain,
is hurt, despair and pain.
For God has sent a Road Map
that will safely lead you home,
To where the Lord will meet us
at His bright and shining throne.
The road to Heaven is a road that’s sure and yours to find,
For on this road are paths that lead to love and peace of mind.
until the journey’s end,
Just know that God was steering you
for He’s your dearest Friend.
The Lord may take you down
that you don’t understand,
But don’t turn back or be afraid
of God’s unchanging Hand.
to a cool and peaceful shore,
Where sorrows are forgotten
when we call His name once more.
The trip may leave you battle-scarred by burdens you will bear,
But as you turn the curves of life,
the Lord is standing there.
So don’t despair my friend when life is not as you had planned,
You won’t get lost for God will lead you to the Promised Land.
Don’t exit off, just hang on to the Road Map you’ve been given,
For this my friend will guide you on the road that leads to Heaven.
