TRAILS

There are many trails we travel in life,

some bring happiness, others bring strife,

some have ups, some have downs,

some through swamps, some on smooth ground,

some in the rain, and some in the sun,

some at a slow pace, some on the run.

Some trails lead us into temptation,

while others lead us in the right direction.

Trails of this world are from birth to the grave;

the gospel trail leads to where we may be saved.

Dear ones, let us choose trails of happiness not strife,

let us take the trail to eternal life.

The trail Jesus trod before us,

leads us to our heavenly home.

Dear brother, dear sister, let us take the trail Jesus trod,

the trail that takes us into the presence of God.
