Latium rises with the morning sun

We are arriving, our flying done

Ahead we think of streets and scenes

Rome is a mystery that we will see


Pastel shades, and churches of old

Developing word foretold

Paul was here and now we stand

This day is joy, our journey becomes our quest


There will be many days that are long

Meals and friendship and hearts entwined

For just this time we will be near

The activity of God in history


This is the day the Lord has made

We will rejoice in it and claim its joy

Our hearts are wedded to this trek

Feet and soul committed to Thee


Overview just ahead then on to the Lancelot

Roman review and devotionals too

This is a blessing for me

Rome is the place to be
