Moving up the highway
The road pilgrims trod
Heading to Jerusalem
The city of God

A place of many evils
Stonings and worse
Jesus went to see them
In the House of God

They ignored the Christ Child
They ridiculed the Son
Then they rigged the jury
And murdered God’s Son

It’s a long way to eternity
Every road goes through Christ
He died in Jerusalem
God’s strength gave Him new life

Raised to always conquer
Jesus cleanses us from sin
The Son is on my agenda
I’m going to see Him

The pilgrims road is littered
With heartaches and fear
So hard for man to trust Him
Belief is seldom dear

I know whom I’ve believed
I know who holds me
I’m going to Jerusalem
To rejoice with the King
