[Verse 1]

This path is old and worn
The steps of those who’ve gone this way before
Voices echo in the wind
And we still can hear them sing

“Take the journey up to the mountaintop
Trace our footsteps to the heights of purpose
Come join us
Uncover the designs, look within the Father’s mind
And see the things that lie beyond the curvature of time”

[Verse 2]

These tracks are old but clear
There’s uniqueness in every voice we hear
“I sacrificed the one – my only son
The one through whom the promises would come”

“I set the people free
Led them to their destiny
Face to face is how He spoke to me”

“And I was careful to construct systems to instruct
I taught them how to hear
When His voice was rare”

“Gather round me, come near to my side”
I hear the ancient say
“And I’ll recount it for the final time
Before I go my way”

“I wrestled with the Lord and though he weakened me
He changed my nature and He changed my identity

The years have dimmed my eyes
The light has gone from me
But hear ye sons of Israel
The future that I see”

[Verse 3]

It was here upon the harp
That He found a man after His own heart
From a shepherd to a king
The Sweet Psalmist of Israel, hear him sing

“Let’s bring His presence home
Let’s make His laws our own
And let His kingdom be forever established on my throne

Let’s speak of covenant and worship from within
Tell of those who through great patience
Endured and entered in”

In their lives He hid His perfect will
Only to be found
By the ones who would delight in Him
Dig deep and search it out

When darkness fills the land
And no one understands
When surrounded by conditions
That shake the hearts of men

We’ll stand among the wise
And those who will arise
To lead the nations to this pathway
And open up their eyes

This path is old and worn
The steps of those who’ve gone this way before
And our voices will ensure
This ancient path will be traversed by many more!
