It is a winding old road
Gathering dust
One lane and not big enough
Few folks travel the Old Roman Road

Armies came this way
Jerusalem to Jericho
Jericho to Jerusalem
Destruction both ways

Trade through here
It was a grand route
One to be feared
Robbers lurked near

Just a little asphalt and rock
Non-descript and quiet
Hard to believe its face
This was an important place?

What do we need to see here?
Yikes the road veers
Look at that old Roman bridge
Wow the bus is over the cliff-side

Jesus walked here
With purpose and dear
He taught about the outcast
He came to the cross through here

I have been here
The Old Roman Road
A place of lasting beauty
It reminded me I belong
