THE PATH OF TRUTH
Dauphin, MB before going to Israel, 1979
An exhilarating path it is but it will be a lonely one for a time. Each segment of it brings its trials and troubles but also its rewards along with proof and assurance that any part of it is more than worthwhile the endeavour.
Music & Lyrics by Victor N. Hafichuk
Well, here we go down the path of truth again,
Looking danger in the eye, fearing nothing but the Lord.
This path is hard and there are few that care to come,
But as we go along we find that chains will all be left behind.
The tears we shed both for ourselves and our friends
Aren’t worth comparing to the glory that’ll be ours when we’re done.
It’s like a dream; it’s like a story of outer space;
It’s like a fairy tale for children; But as we go we find it’s true.
I wouldn’t stop and turn around for all the world;
It’s life or death for me and those who’ve realized the facts of life.
Let come what may even death if that must be,
But I’m convinced that I obey the One Who’ll finally set me free.
The light grows bright as I come closer to the end
And worldly pleasures and possessions fade away as so much smoke.
I find a joy within me bubbling to the surface as in peace I run the race
That will soon give me the prize. Aaa —- aah.
