Eternal Pathways

On this lonely earthly plane
Full of laughter, full of pain

We must not falter or forget
Our future day of judgment

For if our path simply consists
Of this life, full of hurt or bliss

Then we are mortals wasting time
Living life without reason or rhyme

With no law to guide earthly affairs
Except the law of "whenever I care."

But if our pathways go well beyond
This mortal life that we are so fond

Then our short lives we must give account
To the author of the sermon on the mount

Who was, and is, and is to come
The Son of God, the Almighty One

Whose path is eternal, who none can compare
No prophet, no teacher, no mortal anywhere

So invest your life with careful consideration
As we have to give report to the Father of nations

Who bought our souls for an expensive price
Our God, our Savior, Jesus Christ
