Bless Our Road

Lyrics

Let our steps be light

And our thoughts unburdened

May the stars be bright

And our journeys certain

 

Let us make new friends

Call no one stranger

Never meet dead ends

And be led away from danger

 

CHORUS:

Please bless our road

The journeys we have yet to travel on

Please bless our road

And may we learn from where we came from

 

Let us not forget

To stop and smell the flowers

May we look ahead

But live for every passing hour

 

Let us stand our ground

For the things that we believe in

May we make a sound

For those silenced and those lost in weeping

 

CHORUS

 

For the times we don’t know where to go

Give us the strength to press forward

 

CHORUS

 

Let our steps be light

Let us make new friends

Let us stand our ground

Let us not forget

Behind the Song

This is a non-traditional version of T’filat Haderech, the prayer for traveling.

 

The idea was that whether or not we are away from home, there is a way to navigate this crazy road we call life that is filled with love and openness.

 

How do we want to live our lives? We hope that the road ahead leads us to good places, but we also hope that we learn for the better from what we have left behind.
