Early morning light
Foggy mind
Excited heart
Heading for Rome

All have come
To travel Rome
To get to know
Paul’s second home

Busy streets
Crowded walks
Everywhere is history
Open to our eyes

Carla comes to help us see
Pointing out and explaining
Paul was here proclaiming
Jesus death and resurrection

All the wealth
And power to own
And Paul claimed
This place for God

Around the world
Paul’s letters went
Soon he died at Rome’s feet
Jesus brought Rome to its knees

Paul and Peter and Luke
Wrote what Christ could do
Those Words from God
Speaking to me and you

Christ intended us to know
Where we stood and how to grow
Now we arrive in Rome
To see this place early Christian’s called home
