Take your journey in an auto, take your journey in a plane,
On a boat upon the ocean, or just take it on a train.
Maybe you are running, walking, or you’re biking on a trail,
There are many ways life’s journey over which you must not fail.
Thus, whichever way you take it, you must first be well-prepared
So that you will sure enjoy it and from misery be spared.
Life’s a journey in an auto as you drive down all the ways,
And you watch for all the traffic you encounter every day.
Life’s a journey in an airplane as it flies high in the sky,
And it takes you where you’re going faster than the birds can fly.
Life’s a journey on the ocean in a ship so gracefully,
And you wonder how it floats on that majestic shining sea.
Life’s a journey on the railroad in the powerful steaming train
As it passes through the mountains or across the rolling plain.
Life’s a journey when you’re walking, biking, running on the track,
You must be sure you don’t stumble, and not always looking back.
But whatever way you travel, even if you run or walk,
Make sure that you make your contact with Christ Jesus by a talk.
He can be there in the auto, He can be there in the plane;
He can be there in a boat, too, and can be there on the train.
Through the detours, through the storm clouds, through the rough seas, or derailed,
Through the sunshine, through the shadows, Christ’s great guidance has not failed!
When life’s journey is a challenge whether car or boat or plane,
Or you’re walking, biking, running, or just riding on a train,
Just look up to the Great Pilot, the Great Captain, the Great King
Who will guide in all life’s journey and will home you safely bring.
For the moral of this story is this simple thought so true:
This life with its means of travel is just one you’re passing through.
