My Journey to God

Pathway to Bethlehem

Close your eyes
Take a deep breath
Still yourself
God will do the rest

Journey now
And with each step
Draw closer
To Bethlehem

Darkness surrounds
It is night
Save one star
That burns bright

Continue on
Until you find
The baby Jesus
A scene so sublime

Witness a mother’s
“Yes” to love
A promise fulfilled
From a Father above

Kneel down
Bow your head
Experience the hope and joy
He is swaddled in

This is the pathway
To Bethlehem
This is Christmas
The way it is meant

Open your eyes
Take a deep breath
Still yourself
Jesus will do the rest
