Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
To sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all are meant to leave some things,
But never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place
Far greater than we know,
For some, the journey's quicker
For some, the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends
We'll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord.
