The Way to God



      If my days were untroubled
      and my heart always light
      Would I seek the fair land
      where there is no night;
      If I never grew weary
      with the weight of my load
      Would I search for God's Peace
      at the end of the road;
      If I never knew sickness
      and never felt pain
      Would I reach for a hand
      to help and sustain;
      If I walked not with sorrow
      and lived without loss
      Would my soul seek solace
      at the foot of the cross;
      If all I desired was mine
      day by day
      Would I kneel before God
      and earnestly pray;
      If God sent no "Winter"
      to freeze me with fear
      Would I yearn for the warmth
      of "Spring" every year;
      I ask myself this
      and the answer is plain--
      If my life were all pleasure
      and I never knew pain
      I'd seek God less often
      and need Him much less,
      For God's sought more often
      in times of distress,
      And no one knows God
      or sees Him as plain
      As those who have met Him
      on the "Pathway of Pain."
