My father’s testimony. A song.

A poem on the road to Heaven.

There is a road that’s leading heaven bound.

A strait and narrow, not like others found.

It ends abruptly at a raging sea,

Don’t doubt, your faith your wanderer’s staff shall be.

That road is leading homeward just the same

through evil seas of sin and guilt and shame.

There is a bridge appearing on the scene;

To land that no-one mortal ever seen.

This land of hope and grace and peace sublime.

Thank God, You let me find that road in time.

Written by my father (in Swedish) in 1978.

The first verse can be sung to Finlandia, the second verse to Eventide…..
