Together on the Road
1. They were together on the road with the Lord,
but they didn’t understand.
But they walked with their Lord as he spoke of love;
abundant love they couldn’t comprehend.
And as he broke the bread, he fed their hungry hearts.

Together on the road with the Lord,
together on the road with the Lord,
Together on the road to build a world where everyone is free.
Together on the road with the Lord,
together on the road with the Lord,
Together on the road to be the Church he founded us to be.


2. They were together on the road with the Lord,
but they didn’t understand.
But their hearts burned within as he spoke of death;
a sacrifice they couldn’t comprehend.
But as he broke the bread, they recognised their Lord.

3. We are together on the road with the Lord,
and we may not understand.
But he walks with us now and he calls us, too;
to be the Church he founded us to be!
And in a still small voice, he whispers words of love!

4. And we will listen, and we will learn, and we will pray, we will discern!
And we will listen, and we will learn, and we will pray, we will discern!
