A Short Devotion for Young and Old - 16 March 2016, Anno Domini
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matt 7:13-14)
When you have lost your way on a lonesome road
When the course you do not know,
And your thoughts extend, to the journey's end
But your progress it seems slow:
If you're off the track, you can't turn back
To see what the signpost showed,
But the time to decide, that you need a Guide
Is just at the fork of the Road.
When you fail to heed the warning signs
On the broad highway of life
And enter in, through the streets of sin
To sorrow, pain and strife;
How sad to learn, though you may return
You must reap what you have sowed,
But all your tears, of your wasted years
Could be saved at the fork of the road.
As long as the road lies straight ahead
The journey of life is bright,
It's the setting sun, when the day is done
That leads to the gloom of night.
You won't go wrong, as you trod along
If you study the way to go
It is well worthwhile, to save a mile
When you decide at the fork of the road.
