It's Not An Easy Road

E                                 A          E
It's not an easy road we are travelling to heaven
                               B F7 B7
For many are the thorns on the way
     E                          A          E
It's not an easy road, but the Saviour is with us
                                B7  E
His presence gives us joy every day

A                   E
No, no, it's not an easy road
A            E           B  B7
No, no, it's not an easy road
But Jesus walks beside me
    A                 E
And brightens the journey
                       B7 E
And lightens the heavy load

It's not an easy road, there are trials and troubles
And many are the dangers we meet
But Jesus guards and keeps so that nothing can harm us
And smooths the rugged path for our feet


Though I am often footsore and weary from travel
Though I am often bowed down with care
A better day is coming when home in the glory
We'll rest in perfect peace over there
