This is actually a song I wrote years ago. I felt led to share it here. I hope it's ok to post it here, as it is actually lyrics not poetry.
On this narrow road to Heaven
things aren't always smooth and clear.
There are times we climb high mountains,
and the skies are often drear.
Jesus said to strive to enter,
but the real test is to stay.
on the straight and narrow path that we travel,
that will lead us to eternal day.
Don't quit. Don't quit. Listen to God's Spirit.
Don't quit, Don't quit. Run the race and finish it.
There are times you'll be discouraged.
You will feel that you can't go on.
Look to Jesus and you will find rest.
He'll give you strength to carry on.
Lay aside the sin that besets you,
run the race to the crown of life.
Look to Jesus as the Author and Finisher,
for in Him we have eternal Life
( Repeat Chorus)
