My Journey to God

Triumphant in the Dust

Join us on our journey—
Just bring your heart and soul.
Jesus marks the pathway
And heaven is the goal.

Come without misgivings.
Although the path seems steep,
There is always comfort
In promises He’ll keep.

Our footsteps will attest
To our unfailing trust.
Each is facing forward
Triumphant in the dust.

We will help each other
With outstretched hands and prayer.
There are so many ways
To get from here to there.

At the pathway’s ending,
We’ll stand before His throne.
He’ll greet us each by name
And whisper, “Welcome home.”
