The Strenuous Path

by Clinton Herring © 2021

The path of life is treacherous; it's narrow and mostly strenuous.
There's pitfalls on every side.

For God is not found where it's easy; don't skip on the road where it's breezy.
and don't look to the path that is wide.

Search hard for His long term glory; in Him you'll find a new story.
Find Christ His only Son.

Link arms with the Son of Heaven; his scars in hands engraven.
Through death His victory won!

The sufferings of Christ should be ours, but climb high in God's "heavenly towers".
Trust God in the toughest time.

So trouble is close at hand, with God let's take our stand
Our lives with Christ must rhyme.

In Christ the hard work's done, stand with Jesus, God's only Son!
For the path of righteousness is narrow.

There are sirens on every side; in Christ we must choose to abide,
so walk straight and true as an arrow.
