  • Though all the world reject this path,
    I am resolved to travel on.
    The destination far beyond my vision.

    Through faith I trust the aftermath
    fulfills my expectations,
    through faith I pray the journey is the right one.

    What lies ahead, I cannot tell,
    and while my hopes aspire no less
    than golden streets and choirs that swell

    above the bliss of heaven's realm
    I am resigned to emptiness
    should hubris and not God be at the helm.

    This search is not for life beyond the grave,
    this mortal soul is all that I can save.
