Wayfarer

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While traveling through this world of woe
Yet there’s no sickness, toil or danger
in that bright world to which I go.

I know dark clouds were headin’ around me
I know my way is tough and steep
Yet beautious fields lie just before me
Where God’s redeemed their vigils keep.

traditional American Folk Song

Wayfaring
sounds romantic

but wander too long
you may get lost

and beautious fields
ahead
lie too far beyond
the wasteland

some think the
“bright world”
is beyond
this life.

a
terrible
way
to
live

find redemption now.

yes, the way is
tough and steep

but ever worth the climb.
