If I could choose my course,
I would take the sunlit path;
One lined with fragrant flowers
And fields of flowing grass.
But God knows there are lessons
That I can only learn
Along the stony pathway,
On a road that twists and turns.
In love He walks beside me
On the bumpy road of life;
He helps me keep my footing
And floods my way with light.
And all along the journey
When I yearn for the smoother way,
I'm taught that the path He chooses
Is the one that leads to faith.
J M McIntosh
But the path of the just is like the shining sun,
that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
