We all have different journeys,
different paths along the way.
We were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay.
Our destination is a place
far greater that we know.
For some the journey's slow,
for some the journey's fast,
but when the journey finally ends,
we’ll claim our reward at last
and find an everlasting home
together with the Lord.
